Chief and Security officers from Nyahururu Sub County in Laikipia County have today recovered and destroyed over 2,000 litres of illicit brews in an operation on illicit brews within Mahianyo and the Sprawling Kiamaina slums in Laikipia County.
The crackdown led by Nyahururu Division Assistant County Commissioner Ms Wambui Irungu and area Chief Mr Muraya Waithaka was also spread to the nearby villages in an effort to seize the illicit liquor.
However, according to Ms Irungu after suspects discovered the intense operation that brought together officers from both Regular and Administration Police and are chiefs and their assistants was on, they took off fearing arrest.
The ACC said over 2,000 litres was seized and destroyed adding that it was unfortunate that no arrests was made since the brewers were conducting the illicit activities away from their homes.
She maintained that the government would not relent on the war against illegal brews in the area saying security had been beefed up to fight the vice.
