Over 300 Residents of  Rehema  Village in Kesses  Sub county Uasin Gishu, Wednesday took to the  roads  demonstrating over  the   increased sale of  illicit brew .

The irate residents brought down two houses belonging to notorious suspects of the illicit brew.

“Our  chiefs, village elders and  Nyumba  kumi leaders have done more than enough to fight those engaging  in the  sale of illicit  brew within rehema ,However  everytime they are  arrested  they are  immediately  released and upon returning back to the community they  begin to threaten  those  behind  their  arrests,”Said  one of the  village elders .

The Locals have also complained of a spike in the insecurity within Rehema,

“We have been experiencing many cases of insecurity, house break- in and robbery, this has been attributed to the sale of the illicit brew, and upon demolishing some of the houses we found some of the suspected stolen items” They Claimed.

Police officers from Kesses Sub county have since visited the scene , however  the  Kapseret Sub County police Commander could not  immediately respond to Hubzmedia over the status of the ongoing demonstrations.

Last week the Uasin Gishu County Commander  Benjamin Mwanthi declared a  total war against all forms of  illicit  brew within the County.
