Police in Kajiado town on Saturday raided 7 wines and spirits shops and arrested 26 revellers and 7 operators for operating illegally.

Police were also pursuing operators of Chinese betting machines that have been banned by the government.

Kajiado Police County Police Commander Muthuri Mwongera ordered the crackdown following public complaints in the town.

“We have already closed 7 wine and spirits shops that were selling beer in the morning to young people, and have also arrested their owners,” said Mwongera.  

Mwongera also said 26 revellers are in police custody and will be arraigned in court on Monday for not following the Ministry of Health protocols of Covid-19. 

“Our men are also pursuing operators of Chinese betting machines that have been banned by the government, and those arrested will also face the law in court,” said the police boss.

All the arrests happened behind the Cooperative Bank along Bei Nafuu Road in Kajiado town.

Residents had complained to the police that there were 4 wines and spirits joints and a gambling den around the area. 

Police were also told the gamblers are using the Chinese machines that were outlawed in the country by the national government. 

Surprisingly, according to one informer, the premises are next to the Dalalekutuk MCA Ward office.
