Ban alcohol in Sachets

Since the budget was presented, I have rarely updated the blog. This is mainly to preparations to improve the site and make it more news accessible even on mobile phones. But I have also been putting up a team for my Neighborhood, Area 18.
The team's main purpose is to stop and fight alcoholism which has worsened in the area due to the emergence of cheap alcohol put in sachets. These sachets sale anything from K10 (USD0.01) to K25.
But is effects is very devastating.
In Area 18 alone we have lost at least 17 young people from Liver, Kidney or stomach complications arising from alcoholism, while across the country the figure of young people between the age of 13 to 30 dying is on the rise.
We cannot, as Youth Leader continue to accept this state of affairs. Its high time we did something and stop these paid up murders of the young generation.
Government has raised the excise duty for sachets by 250 percent, but that to us is very little as these sachets still cost lower than the locally brewed "Kachasu" which is now around K150 per 300mls bottle.
We cannot continue to accept these deaths, violence including gang rapes, suicides, deformation and chronic illnesses emerging from alcohol abuse.
The problem is that even in primary schools, young kids get these sachets and drink them in classrooms.
It is time for this country to be serious and ban this type of alcohol.
This blog supports total ban on alcohol sold in sachets just as smoking in public. 
So far we have compiled 65 names across Malawi who have died from effects of alcohol, we will release the data soon for Government to take action!
