The vagaries of January could mean fewer people staggering home after taking one too many.
But that is not to say folks have terminated their love affair with the contents of the frothy liquids from Ruaraka.
As such, it was a relief when a truck carrying crates of beer overturned in Westlands area in Nairobi.

As expected, Kenyans who were nearby including boda boda riders abandoned their hustles to scramble for the brown bottles.
A video of the Sunday, January 26, afternoon event showed the looters making away with beer bottles, with some of them enjoying the loot not far from the accident scene.
Be very careful. Never consume bottled drinks from a fallen truck like the one with beer which fell over in Westlands. The drinks are likely to have small broken parts that could be ingested into your system and cause huge health damage in the long run. #ConsumerVoice pic.twitter.com/HsnYYgvvWj

Police officers who arrived at the scene had a rough time chasing the drunkards who were determined to loot enough to cool their parched throats.
