The chairman of the National Authority for Campaign Against Alcohol and Drug Abuse (NACADA) John Mututho is certainly not sleeping on his job. He is currently pushing for age limit for alcohol to be pushed from 18 to 25 years.
The industrious former legislator is also pushing for amendments to the Alcohol Drink Control Act 2010 commonly known as ‘Mututho Law’ to include death sentences for people found dealing in illegal and inferior quality brews.
Speaking to Capital FM News on Wednesday morning, Mututho indicated that this will reduce the number of fatalities and ensure Kenyans are kept safe from production of sub-standard alcohol.
“We have major proposals which we will come to discuss in a matter of days and we would not like to see Kenya go to where the way of America and other countries have. We would like to go the Singapore or China way such that if you are caught, you will know within 48 hours that you are going to the gallows,” Mututho warned.
Over 80 people died in May in different parts of the country after drinking illegal liquor believed to have been laced with industrial methanol.
