MBS gets tough on Midori manufacturers

32

The Malawi Bureau of Standards (MBS) has warned manufacturers of liquor packaged in plastic bottles that they are to be dragged to court if they continue production of the liquor locally known as ”Midori”

The sentiments follow reports of the banned liquor still being on the market across the country.

Reacting on the reports, MBS director general Davlin Chokazinga said they have advised the police to confiscate the liquor on the market across the country.

Davlin Chokazinga says police will now be confiscating the liquor.

Chokazinga added that the police are now to be checking in roadblocks as a way of blocking distribution of Midori in Malawi.

He further warned the companies behind the production of the liquor that they are breaking laws of the country.

“Those that are producing the liquor are actually breaking the laws, we have communicated to them to stop doing so and if we see them doing so, we shall just seek court intervention,” said Chokazinga.

MBS banned the liquor as per Act 51:02 stipulated in MS 210 of 1990.

  4. Why do Malawians take this poison? It is a slow-killing poison whose effects can be seen a few years later! Besides several common effects, the most common affects the liver. It reaches a stage of no-recovery. You will notice that the manufacturers, who are Indians, do not even drink it because they know of its dangers. As far as they are concerned money making out of it is more important than the lives that take it!!!!

  6. Chokazinga is a toothless CEO! He knows the companies that manufacture and package the spirits and yet he cannot take action. It is these people who only talk and no action that make Malawi a backward country. The banned plastic bags (jumbo) are also still in circulation and the manufacturers of them are known to MBS and no action is taken. Why does Malawi keep dead wood to lead? A shame indeed!!!!
