Kenya: Sobering fines for alcohol crimes

Montag 29. November 2010 von htm

The most dramatic legislation in the new law is expected to be gazetted before the weekend, which will ban drinking in a bar during the day.
It is official; you will be arrested and fined Sh150,000 if found in a bar with a child, according to the new alcohol control law that has taken effect.
The Alcoholic Drinks Control Act was gazetted by Internal Security minister George Saitoti on Monday, meaning that manufacturers who package distilled alcohol in a plastic container risk being prosecuted and fined heavily as will be bars which sell such drinks. All supermarkets and petrol station shops selling alcohol in sections that it can be reached by minors will be breaking the new law. In addition, all previous licences for manufacturers, distributors and retailers have expired and businesses have to wait for further instructions from Nacada (the National Campaign Against Drug Abuse).
