Drinking is not a bad idea but should be cautious of the place he or she is drinking at because there has been rise in the number of deaths that are being reported and the cause of poisoning.

In Nakuru county, a person has been reported dead and four others hospitalized after drinking alcohol suspected to be laced with a poisonous substance during a party on Sunday in Elburong.

Molo police boss Kioko Muinde said the five victims, who are labourers at a construction site, were among revellers at a party hosted by their boss at a local bar.

Mr Muinde said the victims fell unconscious and were taken to hospital where one of the them was pronounced dead.
