In a bold move to combat the scourge of illicit alcohol and drug abuse, Interior CS Kithure Kindiki has issued a stern ultimatum to security officers in Central Kenya. Addressing the officers, Kindiki emphasized the critical need for collaboration in the government’s mission to eradicate this menace.

“Security officers can’t enforce the directive to crack down on persons brewing and selling poisonous liquor if they are the owners of bars and outlets selling the same toxic substances,” CS Kindiki declared, highlighting the urgent need for a clear choice between duty and personal interests.

The CS, speaking from Kiambu, emphasized the government’s commitment to the fight against illicit substances, stating, “The operation we have initiated is not a temporary measure. It will continue until this problem is completely dealt with.”

Emphasizing the seriousness of the situation, Kindiki stressed, “There is no room for laxity. This is a security operation, and we will not tolerate any hindrances.”

This directive follows the announcement of 25 key measures by the Ministry of Interior to address the illicit alcohol and drug crisis. Security managers nationwide have been tasked with strict enforcement to safeguard the nation from this significant security threat.
