Thanking members of the public for cooperating with police officers, especially in providing vital information the ACC revealed that 2,000 liters of kangara were destroyed and 60 litres of chang’aa impounded.

Ms. Cherono assured area residents that the government will not relent in her efforts to fight and eliminate all illegal breweries and drinking points in the sub county.

She said the operation will continue to ensure that the area was cleaned of illicit brews vowing to use all available means to ensure that illicit brewing was completely curtailed in the area.
