Waiguru emphasized that her administration will only issue business permits to bar owners who do not have a history of selling illicit liquor.

“We have reached our end. I want you to allow me and give me protection. Today I want to announce that all bars in the county have been closed, and a new process of verifying the licenses has begun. The county government has withdrawn all the licenses with immediate effect,” the governor stated.

Her sentiments were echoed by Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua, who declared a fight against manufacturers, in the back of the killer brews“If you are a police officer in Kenya operating a bar, choose between owning the bars or your jobs, starting from Kirinyaga County. You cannot be flouting the law. It’s not right to do conflicting business,” said Gachagua.
