Activists have recommended the Malawi government for banning the production of liquor sachets citing that a larger population of its consumers who were youths are now 'changed'.
Commenting on the matter country coordinator for Organisation of Africa Youths, Moses David Busher said it was a good move that government through the national assembly banned the selling of the liquor sachets.
According to Busher the liquor sachets have with evidence been confirmed by different schools of thought being negative to the health of people.
He said Malawi should have banned both the production and the selling liquor in such smaller containers.
Busher said Malawi should have emulated the example its counter part Zambia as its government banned both the production and the selling of the liquor.
He further said it is sad to note that Malawi is delaying to pass the Alcohol Policy which regulates on how to establish selling joints,age to consume liquor and the time to open and close of selling joints.
He concluded that it is very sad that companies are still producing the liquor in bottles and sold locally like tomatoes.
There had been instances where many youths lost their lives due to excessive drinking of the liquor which has made Malawi loose its citizens.
After the ban, the distilling companies started producing the beer in 200 ML bottles at a higher price.
This according to experts was just not enough to stop youths from consuming avidly as they did before the ban.
