Sixteen people were arrested by police in connection with selling illicit alcoholic drinks in Migori County.
This happened during an ongoing operation that aims to put an end to the circulation of contraband, illegal drinks and unlicensed products.
Migori County Police Commissioner Mwangi Meru who confirmed the arrest said the officers recovered some illicit liquor that were said to come from neighbouring Tanzania.
The gambling machines have also been recovered across the county.
During the sting operation, two owners of the premises were nabbed.
"We intend to implement government measures so that within one month, all contrabands, counterfeits and illegal substances are fight off," the county commissioner, Mwangi Meru said.
The two suspects arrested were transferred to Migori Town police station together with the seized counterfeits.
The duo are being processed for arraignment in court on Monday next week.
The latest development comes only two weeks when three men were arrested by police for allegedly hawking 20 litres of chang'aa.
