Gachagua Confronts Kindiki Over Interference in Anti-Illicit Brew Efforts

Deputy President Rigathi has accused Interior Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki of directing officers to reopen bars in the Mt. Kenya region, despite efforts to close them as part of the campaign against illicit brew.

Speaking on Sunday in Mathira, the DP said the Interior CS  actions contradict President Ruto’s directive to combat alcoholism and illicit brew, undermining the government’s unified approach and effectiveness in addressing the issue.

”It’s unfortunate that some senior officials, working in cahoots with MPs, have embarked on reopening the pubs we had closed due to their involvement in selling illicit brews,” Gachagua said at Kiamariga Pefa Church.

By facilitating the reopening of bars selling illicit brew, Kindiki undermines the government’s efforts to protect public health and safety, promoting a perception of conflicting agendas within the administration.


Deputy President Gachagua has warned that such interference could politically damage President Ruto’s administration, as it portrays a lack of cohesion and commitment to tackling societal issues.

“Sometimes I wonder what some people in the government are up to. We are in the process of calming Kenyans’ anger over the finance bill, and now they have started this. Why are they undermining the Ruto administration? What do they want us to tell the women who are losing their sons to illicit brews?” Gachagua questioned.

Continued interference risks exacerbating the alcoholism crisis in Mt. Kenya, potentially leading to public discontent and undermining trust in government efforts to address community health and safety concerns.
