A middle aged man has died after reportedly consuming illicit brew in Njiru, Kasarani Sub County.
The man only known to the area residents as Obimbo had allegedly joined his colleagues in one of the Liquor dens in Njiru to usher in the New Year.
Area residents say that the drinking spree reportedly lasted until morning.
Obimbo then started complaining of nausea and started oozing stuff from his nose and mouth.
“It is also alleged that Obimbo told his colleagues that he was feeling nausea after the drinking party that is said to have went on like a night vigil but his colleagues who were already under the influence of alcohol ignored him,” said one of the residents.
He was then rushed to the mama Lucy Hospital where he passed on shortly after admission.
Paul Oyawo alias Swalleh a local activist in Karasani is blaming Njiru Security apparatus for the mushrooming of the unlicensed liquor stores operating 24/7 within the area.
“We convened a meeting with the security agent to solve the menace of the unlicensed liquor stores, but it seems the liquor stores are sources of income to the law enforcers, because each time police offers in official police vehicle are soliciting for bribes from the operators of the liquor dens,” Swalleh said.
