BY SAM ALFAN.
Kenya Breweries and East African Breweries limited directors have seven days to say why they should not be jailed.
They must respond to an application seeking to commit them to jail.

They want directors Andrew Cowan ,and Ms Jane Karuku together with Kenya Breweries Limited(KBL)
sales Director Andrew Kilonzo jailed.
They say that EABL terminated their distribution contracts and KBL has since stopped supplying them with beer from the latter.

“KBL contemptuous actions have brought the operations of the
petitioners to a halt and therefore greatly prejudicing the
petitioner,” Bia Tosha argues.

distributor on the same routes as its single-largest distributor.
