Deputy president Rigathi Gachagua has called upon the governors to compliment the national government’s effort to deal with the menace of Illicit alcohol and substance abuse.
The DP noted that the cases of illicit brew consumption have spiraled and needs a multi sectoral approach to eradicate.
He noted that since the mandate of licensing enterprises dealing with alcoholic beverages was taken from the National Authority for the Campaign Against Alcohol and Drug Abuse (NACADA) to the counties, the illegal business has thrived to dangerous levels.
The DP called on governors to oversee establishment of rehabilitation centres in their respective counties and harmonize licensing to deal with the menace. He also urged for advocacy empowering of NACADA .
