Nearly 4,000 litres of illicit brews have been destroyed in Rarieda in an operation led by Deputy County Commissioner Joseph Onyango.
The security officers destroyed 2,500 litres of unlicensed liquor from Uganda, popularly known as Simba waragi, and 1,480 litres of chang'aa.
Mr. Onyango blamed courts for issuing small fines against brewers. He said consistent destruction of such brews would discourage the trade.
"We have established that there are some rogue judicial officials who collude with the peddlers and that some of the liquor taken to court finds its way back to villages,” he said.
He warned local administrators and police officers said to be protecting illicit liquor traders that they would be punished.
