Local administrators in Soy sub location; Likuyani Sub County seized and destroyed over 400 litres of illicit brew in Lumino village.

Led by the area assistant chief Bonivanture Lugado the administrators made impromptu raids to various illicit brew dens in the village and netted hundreds of litres of illicit brew commonly known as Kangara used in making chang`aa.

“Illicit brewing contributes to poverty and insecurity since our young and energetic men and women are lost in the drinking dens and the only thing they can do to get money is stealing. This is why we should all join hands to eradicate the illicit brew,” said Lugado.
