One of the organizations in the country which was established in response to the negative effects of alcohol intake by youths, Drug fight Malawi, has expressed dissatisfaction in the way government is handling the National Alcohol Policy.
Executive Director for Drug Fight Malawi, Nelson Zakeyu, said government is taking time to implement the policy.
”There is no progress when it comes to the implementation of the alcohol policy, we would love government to consider the policy as an issue of national importance,” said Zakeyu.
He further said that it has been long since the policy was taken to the office of the president to be scrutinised.
He added that government should look into the welfare of people as they are yearning to have the policy implemented.
According to Zakeyu, most children are being destroyed by alcoholism hence the need to quickly implement the policy.
For a long time Drug Fight Malawi has been asking government to implement the drug policy but nothing has been done.
