Kerrow Calls Miraa A Dangerous and Evil Drug
A week after the ministry of Health termed Miraa drug as a danger to human health, former Mandera Senator has called on youths to abandon chewing as it is destroying their future. Mr. Billow Kerow has termed Miraa as an evil drug that is seriously crippling stability of our society. He called on the Somali community who are the majority consumers to stop chewing the leaves if they are serious about transforming their communities.
The Ex Legislature has also urged the Government to stop giving incentives to farmers but urge farmers to diversify to alternative farming. “The Government needs to classify Miraa as a drug and stop giving farmers incentives to destroy our youths, ” said Mr. Kerrow. Passionate plea by the former Senator comes in the wake of the catastrophe the drug is causing among the Somali and Meru communities.
