Alcoholism is the biggest threat to UHURU’s Big Four Agenda - NACADA tells the President

Thursday, June 27, 2019 - President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Big Four Agenda may be just a pipe dream unless the Government addresses the issue of Alcoholism in the country.

This is according to the National Authority for Campaign against Drug Abuse (NACADA).

Alcohol remains the most abused drug in the country affecting millions of youths according to a recent survey carried out by the authority.

Uhuru’s Big 4 Agenda entails manufacturing, universal healthcare coverage, affordable housing and food security.

“Achieving the big four agenda requires a youthful and healthy population which is now threatened by alcoholism,” said Interior Chief Administrative Secretary (CAS), Patrick Ole Ntutu

The authority lists school children at primary and secondary levels as the most affected as studies placed alcohol consumption at its highest at the institutions.

This is due to proximity to bars adding that most shops and kiosks around the institutions were dens of alcohol from where workers sell the commodity to students.

To tame this menace, NACADA called on County Governments to support ongoing programs to sensitize the communities and the youth against the effects of drug abuse.
