KENYAN TEENS ALARMINGLY TAKING ALCOHOL FORGETTING TO STUDY

Even though the Alcoholic Drinks Control
Act (2013) clearly states that; No person holding a licence tof
manufacture, store or consume
alcoholic drinks under this Act shall
allow a person under the age of
eighteen years to enter or gain access
to the area in which the alcoholic drink is manufactured, stored or
consumed. Who cares? The bar owners need money,
and young people want to have fun. A recent research shows that young
people start consuming alcohol between
the age 12 – 16 years. A bigger
percentage of them receive their first
drink from their friends, relatives and
even parents. 44.9% of them drink on special
occasions, 32.9% on school holidays,
6.6% 2-3 times a week, 5.1% daily, 5.1%
once a month, 3.3% every two weeks and
2.9% once a week. Courtesy NACADA/ Ipsos Join the Conversation You May Like: PREVIOUS ARTICLE Omwela to Re Structure Sevens Team Contracts NEXT ARTICLE Ibrahimovic handed one-match ban over Chelsea red card The Rate at Which
