Catastrophic Chang’aa Drinking Competition



The society has lost it all again. From depression, to suicide and now life threatening competitions.

Job hunting stress and stress from joblessness has drived  our current generation to doing crazy things.

A 28-year-old man died on Monday morning after consuming excessive alcohol in a drinking competition at Mukosi village in Kimilili! Constituency, Bungoma County.

The deceased and other locals converged at an illicit drinking den in their area on Sunday night. They embarked on a  drinking spree that would later turn to a deadly and tragic scene.

They are said to have agreed to take part in Chang’aa drinking competition.

The battle was to gallop five-litre bottle full of chang’aa and the winner was to walk away with Ksh.1,000 only.

The 28-year-old winner of the chang’aa drinking competition collapsed immediately after he was declared the owner of ksh 1000.

Some of the revellers opted to take him home to sleep with assumptions that he had passed out, while others fled the scene.

He was confirmed dead on Monday morning with his body being moved to Kiminini Funeral Home in Trans Nzoia County.

Police have since launched a crackdown to nab those involved in the sale of the illicit brew and the other involved parties who set up the tragic competition.
