Authorities are now calling for amendment of the Alcoholic Drinks Act to regulate online liquor sales, saying the gap in the law is posing a big challenge in curbing underage drinking and sale of counterfeit products. There are about 546,000 online channels through which anyone can order alcohol in Nairobi with some promising delivery within less than 30 minutes.
