Recognizing the seriousness of alcoholism in the country, the Kenyan Parliament enacted the Alcoholic Drinks Control Act of 2010, also known as Mututho law in an attempt to bring sanity in the Alcohol sector. Nevertheless, the regulation of alcohol consumption may highly affect the socio-economic welfare of the alcohol outlets. This study therefore sought to establish the effect of the Alcoholic Drinks Control Act, 2010 on the alcohol industry.The study carried out both qualitative and quantitative research on the relevant stakeholders in the alcohol industry. From the findings, the study established that the various agencies which have been given the mandate to deal with alcoholism are working together to implement the law.This study recommends that the officers charged with implementation of Mututho law to be strict and thorough. The agencies should create awareness, improve economic status, involve the media, information sharing forums, provide funding and assist the county governments.
