Thirty KCSE candidates from a local school are being held by police in Bomet County after being busted conducting a night party where they engaged into underage drinking.
The boys and girls who recently completed their KCSE were found at a house in Chepngaina village at the outskirts of Bomet town after a concerned neighbor raised alarm.
Police also arrested the woman who purportedly provided the teenagers with food and alcohol.
The students who were in pairs were busted as they engaged in singing and dancing while indulging in alcohol and illicit sex.
Bomet township location Chief Reuben Ngetich who led the operation said concerned neighbors at the village raised alarm after hearing loud music and shouting at the house.
Ngetich said: “At a round 11:00PM on Friday I was called by locals over students shouting and dancing and I alert police and we conducted an operation where we arrested 30 underage boys and girls and we discovered were students who had completed their KCSE exams.”
He said empty beer bottles and used condoms were found at the scene.
The administrator at the same time said they arrested a woman believed to have supplied them with alcohol.
Confirming the incident, Bomet OCPD Samson Rukunga said they are still finding out whether they are all students.
“Yes, I can confirm we made arrest last night and we are treating them as normal drunkards as we try and find out if they are actually students.” he said.
The police boss said they will be charged in court on Monday.
Parents of some of the students arrested camped outside the police station hope to secure the release of their children.
The incident comes hot on the heels of concerns of underage pregnancies within the country and a day after a video emerged of form four candidates insulting CS Matiangi and Amina Mohamed.
This latest raid just illustrates the moral decay that has taken over boys and girls who have just completed High School.
