CS DUALE speaks after bouncers stabbed five journalists and police officers at KILIMANI pub during Shisha crackdown

- Defence Cabinet Secretary, Aden Duale, has spoken about an incident in Kilimani on Friday where club bouncers stabbed five journalists and police officers during a shisha crackdown by National Authority for the Campaign against Alcohol and Drug Abuse (Nacada) officers.

While reacting to an attack on journalists and police officers, the CS said owners of shisha dens must face the law.

The Public Health (Control of Shisha Smoking) Rules, 2017 prohibits the import, manufacture, sale, use, advertising and promoting, and distribution of shisha.

"Regardless of your status and political affiliation, owners of Shisha dens must face the law.”

“Attacking journalists and Law enforcement officers is illegal, Primitive and immoral.”

“We must protect the family from Drug abuse," Duale said.

This is not the first time Duale has declared his support for the fight against shisha.

On December 24, 2023, he said Nacada should continue with the raid, noting that shisha is illegal.

"Shisha addicts must face the law, as it has been illegal in Kenya since 2017," Duale said.
