Health CS Mutahi Kagwe on Wednesday said the ban on the sale
of alcohol in eateries is a blessing in disguise since the money can now be
channeled towards more useful things.
While giving the daily Covid-19 update, CS Kagwe said he was
also a fan of the famous ‘Kagwe Special’ but will now use the money to do other
things at home.
wamezoea pombe sana, sema asante kwa Mungu ameleta mambo ambayo itakuzuia
kwenda bar. Pesa ungetumia kwa pombe, nunulia bibi na watoto zawadi, angalia
nyumba yako. Hata mimi nilikuwa nafurahia Kagwe special.
“Some were so used to the bottle…you should thank God that
this pandemic will prevent you from going to the bar.
“Use the money to buy things at home. Check what your wife
and children need,” he said.
