Jaguar appeals for Uhuru’s help in fight against drug abuse
NACADA director and singer Charles Njagua, aka Jaguar, has made passionate plea to president Uhuru Kenyatta and internal security cabinet secretary Joseph Nkaissery not to relent in the fight against illicit brews and drug abuse.
Jaguar, who was speaking when he visited Aden Rehabilitation Centre in Parklands, Nairobi, on Friday said the drugs menace, especially amongst the youths consuming illicit brews is slowly creeping back, yet the youth had started desisting from consumption of illicit brew and drugs.
“I’m now appealing to the president and the internal security cabinet secretary, not to relent on fighting illicit brews, and continue empowering chiefs, who have worked hard to stop the menace,” said Jaguar.
He had gone to the centre to sponsor 10 former drug addicts to record music.
“Women are also doing a good job in fighting drug abuse, so they should keep doing that,” he said.
Jaguar was last week invited to speak to young people at the Mt Kenya University, during their graduation ceremony where he urged the education cabinet secretary Jacob Kaimenyi to encourage sporting activities in schools to help in fighting drug abuse.
