The Uasin Gishu Director Alcoholic Drinks Control Board Mr. Koiya Arap Maiyo, has applauded joint efforts by his  department ,The Kenya  National Police and The County Inspectorate Service after conducting a successful joint operation targeting High end bars and nightclubs allowing the  smoking of Shisha.

Several people were on Friday Night apprehended in the joint operation,

“we will intensify the fight against alcohol and drug abuse,Sisha is  banned in Kenya , we will also not  allow bars to operate without a license” Warned Koiya .

In 2017,Kenya  implemented a comprehensive ban on shisha, including the use, import, manufacture ,sale,offer of  sale,advertising,promotion distribution,and encouraging or  facilitating its use.

Shisha is considered a gateway to the consumption of other hard drugs such as heroin and bhang.

Despite the  ban in 2017, Shisha has found its way back into the Pubs and entertainment  joints across the Country.

The Multi Agency crackdown operations against hard  drugs and illicit  brew will be intensified in the coming days.
