Africa: cardinal says family breakdown spurs rise in alcoholism
Catholic World News - October 04, 2011
Cardinal John Njue of Nairobi is attributing the rise of alcoholism among Kenyan youth to the breakdown in the family. The cardinal’s comments followed the deaths of over 30 people who drank chemical-laced alcoholic beverages.
“In areas where we have strong family support systems, these cases are fewer,” he said.
