Forty-four teenagers were on Saturday night arrested during a house party in Nairobi’s Mountain View Estate.
Alcohol and drugs were seized during the operation that was triggered by a tip-off from residents on the existence of a cartel targeting schoolgirls in the city.
At least 26 boys and 18 girls aged between 14 and 17 were arrested according to a statement by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations.
All are in primary and secondary schools in Nairobi, Kiambu and Machakos counties and had been there for hours, the police said.
The aftermath of the drinking spree is evident by the many empty bottles of liquor in all the rooms in the house.
In a scruffy state, the house exposes the activities of the nights before.
A half-eaten cake, re-usable party cups as well as bottles of drinks were left on the bed.
Following the arrests, detectives had contacted some of the teenagers’ parents.
The host, a 41-year-old woman, was interrogated by detectives attached to the Dagoretti police command. Bhang and different brands of whisky and vodka were nabbed.
