He further warned locals against engaging in dangerous drinking sprees and especially the harmful uptake of illicit brews that is widespread in various parts of the constituency.

The lawmaker vowed to begin a crackdown on manufacture, sale, and consumption of outlawed substances such as chang’aa in collaboration with residents.

“Careless driving, excessive alcohol consumption by residents and other socially unacceptable behaviours that infringe on the rights of others should be avoided by everyone. We want to have a peaceful Christmas.

“Like I have told the people, illicit brews will be fought by all of us including the government and the people. Those who manufacture should stand warned that their days are numbered as they in most cases do not consume what they sell to our people,” the MP said.

Many people have traveled far and wide to join their family members upcountry to enjoy the long holiday.
