CANDIDATES

The 11 girls and 22 boys, all Form Four candidates, were arrested at around 9pm.

Police, led by the area Officer Commanding Police Division (OCPD) Wilson Kosgei, established that they were on a school tour of Nakuru and Nyahururu town before they decided to engage in drinking.

According to the police, some girls were almost naked, indecently exposing their bodies, an indication that they may have spent the better part of the day drinking at the local pub.

“They were not even aware of the arrest; they sang and danced popular mugithi songs at the police station,” said the area Officer Commanding Police Division (OCPD) Wilson Kosgei.
