Chipukeezy, who is a board member on National Authority for the Campaign against Alcohol and Drug Abuse (NACADA), wants a tough action to be taken to curb drug abuse.
Speaking at KICC during the first international conference on drugs demand reduction, Chipukeezy revealed that alcohol is still the number one most abused drug in Kenya.
“There is an emergence of the use of hard drugs in our urban areas, especially Nairobi. Most young people lack mentors in life and end up indulging in drugs, and alcohol is still number one, although hard drugs like cocaine are also abused,” said Chipukeezy.
Boots on the ground
Chipukeezy admits that fighting the drug menace cannot be successful with relevant people sitting in their offices, it’s for this reason that Chipu wants boots on the ground.
“We cannot solve this problem in our offices. Therefore, we need to come out and talk to the people on the ground about drugs, and let’s reduce the talks and increase the actions,” said Chipukeezy.
