Naivasha liquor plant shut down

AP officers raided the factory and recovered illicit brews, brewing equipment, KRA stamps and lethal chemicals some of which are used in mortuaries.

During the operation led by area AP boss Maingi Mbuthia, one suspect was arrested.

It emerged that the factory has been supplying the liquor to various estates in Nairobi and Central Kenya for one year.

Addressing the press yesterday, Naivasha subcounty commissioner Mohammed Abass said the raid is part of the ongoing operations against illicit liquor.

He said there is a rise in selling of illegal brews.

“Some of the chemicals used in preparing these brews are lethal and we are investigating their origin,” Abass said.

He said the suspect owns the factory. “He does not have any licence or official document yet he has been in operation for months,” Abass said
