An MP wants the National Authority for Campaign against Alcohol and Drug Abuse (Nacada) dissolved for allegedly failing to end alcohol-related deaths.

Kathiani MP Robert Mbui said last week's incident in his constituency where four people died after consuming a suspect illicit brew was an indication that the organisation had failed in its duties.

He said those who died had consumed alcohol packaged in bottles with Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS) certification marks, a mystery he said Nacada should explain.

Mr Mbui hit out at Nacada Chairman John Muthutho, who he said talks tough but does much his words with actions.

''They talk too much and do very little,'' he said.

He added: ''We cannot let our people continue dying because of someone's mistakes,'' he said.

The MP at the same time criticised CORD legislators, who he said had been bribed to wreck the coalition from within.

''Let them know that those who elected them are watching,'' he said. He called on Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka to take stern disciplinary action against rebel.
