Team to Inspect Alcohol Plants

Interior CS Joseph Nkaissery has constituted a task force for the regulation of alcoholic beverages.

Nkaissery yesterday said the task force comprises regulatory and law enforcement agencies.

He said the team will audit alcoholic beverages as part of the government’s campaign to eradicate dangerous alcoholic drinks.

“The task force was gazetted on July 10 and will visit and inspect all premises manufacturing alcoholic drinks and recommend measures of control, including closure of production premises where necessary,” Nkaissery said at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre.

He urged proprietors and managers of production plants to cooperate with the inspectors.
