Women from Manga in Nyamira County have raised alarm over their husbands' irresponsibility in marriages. 

They claimed that their husbands have 'married' local brew chang'aa after they received tea bonus money. 

"Men have become irresponsible after tea bonus money was released. We are living in fear that we may be left widows because the rate at which men are consuming alcohol is too high," said Agnes Nyaboke.

Beatrice Nyakara accused local chiefs for colluding with local illicit brewers for the increased cases of irresponsible men.

"Chiefs have been collecting bribe from chang'aa brewers and sellers thus making it hard for the illicit business to end. Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang'i must intervene to save our marriages from breaking since men have turned to chang'aa to be their 'wives'," she noted. 

A local assistant chief Fred Magero however, assured that a crackdown is ongoing to ensure those engaging in illicit  businesses are apprehended. 

"It is true since tea bonus money was released, cases of men consuming illicit brews are at the peak but, as local administrators we are doing everything possible to clear the mess," he noted.
