The County Government of Siaya has announced plans to legalize production and consumption of chang’aa.
The County has already established a liquor directorate which is currently checking on the required standards before they can finalize the legalization of the brew.
Through the County’s Enterprise and Industrial Development Ministry, plans are being hatched which will see local brews produced in a standardized manner and properly packaged to boost trade and even create employment in the county.
According to officials from the ministry, they see no need of keeping the ban on the traditional liquor as long as there is a way through which it can be made in a standardized manner.
They seem to be following the footsteps of countries like Uganda and Tanzania where Waragi and Konyagi (local liquors) have been legalized.
