Police in Mombasa and Makueni counties have recovered several litres of illicit brew.

In a statement on Friday, National Police Service (NPS) said a multi-agency team confiscated 1,200 litres of 'Kangara' and 20 litres of Chang'aa in Mikindani, Mombasa.

In Makueni, 208 bottles of 250ml Magic times alcoholic spirits believed to be contraband were confiscated.

"We thank the National Government Administration Officers and members of the public for their continued support in the fight against crimes," NPS said.

Police from Kikuyu Police Station led by the Sub-County Police Commander also recovered alcoholic drinks, 9,000 empty bottles of different alcoholic brands, 2,000 empty cartons, stickers of different brands, distillation apparatus and KRA stickers.

Police recover bhang, illicit brew

Last month, police in Ruiru impounded bhang that was being processed in a homestead near a school and arrested four suspects.

The drug was among other items recovered, including illicit brews and 40 litres of ethanol that was being manufactured and packaged a short distance from Gatong'ora primary school and the newly opened Ruiru Vocational Training College.

Area sub-county police commander Alex Shikondi said his officers, acting on a tip-off from members of the public, raided the premises, but the main suspect fled from the dragnet.
