She warned that the local authority will continue ‘pouncing’ on businesses perpetrating illegal activities in the district.

“A combined team of health inspectors, council and state police seized the beers during a shebeen control operation in several households in Maiteneke area,” Mulenga said.

She insisted that the selling of liquor without a license and selling of alcohol in residential areas was illegal according to the Liquor Licensing Act of 2011.

Mulenga cautioned members of the public against turning homes into bars or patronizing shebeens as anyone found wanting would be prosecuted.
