Kenya Deputy President Gachagua Banking On Churches To Win Fight With Alcohol Cartels

During the funeral service of Joseph Mwangi, father to Benjamin Gathiru, Embakasi Central MP, Deputy President Gachagua outlined his strategy to engage church leaders in combatting societal challenges. He emphasized the crucial role of church leaders in this endeavor and expressed confidence in their potential contribution.

“Church leaders play a vital role in our society. I intend to convene a meeting with them to enlist their support in our collective fight, which I am confident we can win together,” Gachagua stated.

Addressing administrators, the Deputy President underscored the urgency of tackling the issue of illicit brews, affirming that failure to do so would result in consequences.

“We must decisively confront the scourge of illicit brews. Administrators who fail to eliminate this menace will face dismissal,” he warned.

Gachagua emphasized the leadership role of Nyeri and Uasin Gishu counties in leading the charge against illicit brews. He asserted that both he and the President would take the lead in their respective counties, setting a clear expectation for administrators to either deliver results or face consequences.

The Deputy President, motivated by personal loss due to alcoholism within his family, expressed his unwavering commitment to prevailing in this battle.

Accompanied by a delegation of over 20 MPs, Gachagua called for unity among leaders in the Mt Kenya region, emphasizing that collective effort is essential for meaningful development.

The attending lawmakers pledged their support for initiatives aimed at eradicating illicit brews, affirming their commitment to the cause.
