Kamiruri village in Bahati, Nakuru county was brought to a standstill after residents moved to the streets to protest the death of a resident who died under mysterious circumstances.

The aggrieved locals noted that the deceased identified as Mwangi Chege was found dead after he spent his Sunday drinking at a local bar.

They decried that the incident was among the many similar instances reported to the police but remain unresolved.

"It is not the first time that we are reporting cases of deaths in bars in Mwisho wa Lami," one of the residents told a local publication.

While denouncing the area officers for being reluctant with the cases, the locals demanded the authorities to state why they too long to respond to such matters.

The family of the deceased on the other hand noted that they received the news of the death of ther kin from officers who picked up his body from the local bar.

The area police boss has issued a closure notice to the bar's management. Meanwhile, Kuria Muiruri, Nakuru County Executive Committee Member (CECM) for trade, vowed that all bars will undergo fresh vetting.

He subsequently ordered county enforcement officers to arrest bar owners operating illegally.
