Nacada warns against counties violating drinking hours

The National Authority for the Campaign against Drug Abuse (Nacada) has accused county governments of derailing the fight against alcohol abuse.
The agency said while it had restricted the hours bars should operate, county governments had allowed them to open day and night.
The Alcoholic Drinks and Control Act allows bars to open between 5pm and 11pm during week days, and 2pm to 11pm during weekends and holidays.
“We will not allow county governments to give permits to bars to operate all day. This contravenes the alcohol and drinks law. When will we work when bars open early in the morning?” said the Nacada regulatory services manager, Judy Twala.
She was speaking yesterday when the agency raided several bars in the county where they had gone to monitor compliance with the law.
She said Nacada would not allow county governments to violate national laws 'for their own selfish gains'.
