Local illicit brewers have been advised to stop the business with fear of spreading covid-19 disease.

Majority of drunkards overcrowd while taking the local brew known as busaa and chang’aa in drinking dens.

Mr. James Nyongesa Wafula, the former West Nalondo MCA reiterated that the security in charge should do a door to door patrol to help in curbing such illicit business to help curb covid-19 pandemic.

‘’I call upon our chiefs, assistant chiefs and assistant county commissioners to do door to door patrols and help curb this illicit business,” he advised.

He added, “Many of our local drunkards have given a deaf ear to the government’s directives saying that the disease is only affecting those in towns and those who travel from one country to the other,”.

Wafula dismissed allegations being spread in local villages that when you consume excess alcohol you cannot be affected by the global disease.

‘’Many local drunkards while taking local brew commonly known as ‘busaa’ they crowd around and this is one way of spreading the virus,” he said.

The former ward leader in Kabuchai constituency advised Bungoma residents to follow the government’s directives to make sure that they are not affected with this pandemic, adding that they should learn lessons from the affected countries.

‘’Let me take this opportunity to advise those people who are still making local fermented brew that when spotted you will be arrested and charged in the court of law,” he advised.

Wafula called on residents to invest heavily in agriculture saying that this is the only development measure that will save many of them when the country will enforce a total lockdown.

‘’From the look of things the country is likely to stop many operations following the faster spreading of the covid-19 pandemic,” he said.

He urged the police officers who were assigned the duty of maintaining security during the ongoing curfew not to be very harsh to the residents, accusing thieves who have taken the advantage by hijacking and stealing peoples belongings that when caught should be arrested and charged.

He called on the boda boda operators to follow the rules deployed by the ministry of health including wearing nose masks while riding motorbikes and not carrying more than two customers as this is one of the ways to stop the spread of the virus,” he said.

Wafula called on parents to take care of their young ones especially this dangerous time, adding that learners should stay indoor and engage themselves in studies.
