A COMBINED team of Zambia Police and officers from Chipata Municipal Council on Tuesday swung into action confiscating large quantities of illegal alcoholic drinks commonly known as Tujilijili.

The officers went round the district confiscating the alcoholic drinks in bars, streets within town and in the compounds.

A check at the council found officers offloading different types of the Tujilijili alcoholic drinks from the vehicle.

And Chipata Municipal Council, Director of Housing and Social Services Judith Maambo said that the alcohol was being confiscated because they are packaged in wrong bottles and are being sold in wrong places where children below the age of 18 could easily access them.

Ms Maambo further indicated that there are other offences that bar owners commit every day and the council would soon move in to control the situation.

She said that the local authority wants to create order in the way business was conducted in town.

And Chipata Municipal Council Public Relations Officer, Falesi Banda said the exercise was on-going until the alcohol was out of the market because it was being sold illegally and was harmful to people’s lives.
