Lusaka City Council seizes quantities of banned highly intoxicating brew, Kachasu


The Lusaka City Council (LCC) has seized 40 litres of illicit beer, locally known as “Kachasu.”

LCC Assistant Public Relations Manager, Nyambe Bulumba, said the highly intoxicating illicit beer was confiscated from various traders near the University Teaching Hospital.

Bulumba in a statement issued in Lusaka on Wednesday stated that the owners had since been arrested pending court appearances with possible prosecutions.

“The local authority has repeatedly warned illicit (Kachasu) beer brewers and sellers to cease this illegal activity but to no avail,” he said.

Bulumba stated that they had however, intensified inspections across the city to put an end to this practice.

He urged members of the public to refrain from engaging in the illegality, as no one would be exempt from the cleanup.

“We would like to state that the Council is extending the intensified inspections to all parts of the city,” Bulumba said.

He warned that during the exercise, they would apprehend and prosecute brewers, retailers and buyers to disrupt the illegal chain.

Bulumba assured that the Council remained committed to completely eradicating Kachasu brewing and selling at all costs.

“We will continue to protect members of the public from such health hazards,” he stated.
