Police to crack down on homebrew issue

The impact of homebrew was addressed by police today after a massive raid uncovered a family that was taking part in producing this illegal drink in the nation’s capital.

NCD Taskforce Commander, Mark Mosinakave, says despite the destructive nature of the homebrew production and sales, people are still carrying out this illegal activity.

“They think that what they are doing is good for them, but they do not realise that they are affecting the community as well as contributing to law and order issues,” he stressed.

Mosinakave said many times people use the excuse of making a living by selling this drink as a way to meet basic costs such as buying school fees and uniforms, however, he stated that these are just mere excuses that police will not entertain.

“There are many ways to make a living in the informal sector, people do not have to resort to illegal means to make a living,” he said.

Meanwhile, the NCD Taskforce is expected to carry out more homebrew raids in the city to deal with this major law and order issue that is being faced at present.
