The Malawi Bureau of Standards (MBS) has in the past week confiscated over 5000 bottles of Win alcohol worth about K45 million in Blantyre, Mwanza and Lilongwe.
MBS Director Of Testing Services Stephen Kuyeli has since disclosed that the bureau will from today start burning the alcohol in Mwaza.
The alcohol is sold to people in sachets, which the government banned.
Said Kuyeli:”It is unfortunate that despite the ban, some companies continue packaging this beer and in quantities that are against the law. We will continue doing our work and those found breaching the law will be brought to book.
“Today we will burn some of the alcohol in Mwanza, then on 4 April, we will do the same exercise in Blantyre to send a warning that we are serious.”
Kuyeli has also urged the general public to report to MSB anyone found selling win alcohol.
