According to police, the 18 teenagers-16 of whom were below 18 years were found drinking alcohol while celebrating a birthday.

Ruiru Deputy County Commissioner Geoffrey Githinji rued the gathering that was against COVID-19 containment protocols.

Githinji warned those who sold alcohol to the children, promising that they will be arrested and prosecuted.

The children will be released later today, with Githinji calling upon parents to be more vigilante about their children’s whereabouts, especially now that they are idle because of closure of schools.
