The Nairobi City County Alcoholic Drinks Control and Licencing Board has closed down five outlets operating at Jerusalem Shopping centre Embakasi West for selling illicit and expired drinks and operating without liqour licences.
The raid was done today by the board and area chief following public outcry after three middle aged men consumed the same liquors and died.
According to area chief Nicholus Maingi the anti-counterfeit agency and NACADA officers visited the area last week but failed to act on the matter.
The board has further warned that the operation will continue until they weed out the illegal brews and those operating without liquor licences in Nairobi.
Most affected estates are Kayole,Buru buru,Makadara,Mathare,Kariobangi South,Ruaraka and Nairobi West.
