Statehouse bans Muguka and Miraa chewing to its security officers and other staffs
Miraa and Muguka banned at statehouse



Statehouse directs Miraa users in the Presidential press, security and staff around that it is out of bound.



The Presidential escort officers have been warned and blocked from chewing miraa and muguka.



In a notice from the head of presidential escort unit, the ban takes effect from July 6.



The notice signed by George Kirera said the ban follows health risks that the leisure herb has posed on majority of the officers and their service.




  "Please be informed that it has been noted with high level of concern by this office that chewing miraa and muguka is posing a lot of health risk to our personnel and their families," read part of the notice.



"With effect from July 6, 1400 hrs, no Prescort personnel or civilian residing within the camps will be allowed to chew miraa or muguka within the camps or work station," it states further.




Any officer or statehouse staff who will breach the directive will face severe administrative action include sacking.



"Bring this information to the attention of all personnel and acknowledgment receipt of this signal on or before July 7," the notice read.



In 2015, a study indicated that consumption of miraa affects the sexual capability of men and could lead to a heart attack.
