Mandera kicks-off crackdown on drugs and illicit brews

The  Mandera County Government  on Thursday  embarked  on a vigorous campaign to rid the region of narcotics and illicit brews.

The  Mandera County Executive (CES) for Public Service, Ahmed  Sheikh  warned that the Executive  will  stop at nothing to cleanse the region of the vice.

Sheikh  said drugs and alcohol have negatively impacted on the lives of many youths who have been turned into zombies, contributing decimally to the economy of the region.

He  said  youths have been deeply engaged in drug abuse and have become economically unproductive.

Landlords  renting their houses for the illegal business have also been put on notice and warned that they risked being denied licenses in future.

The  campaign  being carried out by the County Reinforcement Agents will stretch to other Sub-counties and those found in possession of drugs and illicit brews  taken to Court.
