Interior and National Administration Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki has ordered security agents to eradicate the menace of illicit alcohol and drug abuse in the Country.

Speaking in Mumias West Sub County on Tuesday, he said that efforts to fight the menace will continue until it is completely dealt with.

‘‘The operation will continue and be enforced by the police. I urge the police to be vigilant and arrest those peddling prohibited drugs and illicit brew,” He said.

He called on the police to spearhead the exercise and ensure the culprits were arrested and charged before the law courts.

“The war against manufacturing, trade and consumption of illicit brew must be won. This is a security operation,” He added.

He said the police chiefs Countrywide have been instructed to adhere to strict enforcement of the policy and operational guidelines issued by the government in the eradication of poisonous and toxic substances.

The CS who was accompanied by area MP Johnson Naicca, MCAs and opinion leaders later opened a new office for Assistant County Commissioner at Musanda Division.

He said the Divisional headquarters will offer National identity cards, birth and death certificates to the public.
