The Pharmacy and Poisons Board (PPB) have closed 118 illegal chemists. The PPB in conjunction with the National police service have arrested 97 people whom are alligned in court with various offences.
Dr. Dominic Kariuki, the deputy director inspectorate at Pharmacy and Poisons Board said that the 97 people who were arrested did not meet the required standards of being allowed to sell drugs. Therefore they were taken to court where each was fined ksh. 250,000 for being guilty of the offence.
As a result of this, the deputy director inspectorate has said that they have identified cartons containing drugs which have not meet the standards. He added that much investigation is being done in order to ensure that other illegal chemists are also shut down in order to avoid selling poisonous drugs to patients.
People are therefore urged to be very much Keen with where they are buying drugs as some chemists which are illegal can sell drugs which have already expired or drugs which have not been approved by KEBS.
