Police officers in Homa Bay County are presently holding 36 teenagers who were arrested while partying at a house within Koweo village in Rachuonyo East sub-county on Saturday night.

The children, aged between 12 and 17 years, were arrested in an operation led by Kojwach Kawere sub-location Assistant Chief Isaiah Ondoro and his Kojwach Kamyoro counterpart Fredrick Okeyo.

According to Mr. Ondoro, they raided the house at 11 pm and arrested 8 girls and 28 boys while four others escaped after jumping out of the fence.

The administrator said a majority of the teenagers sat for the 2020 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) and Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exams while the rest were still in primary school.

Mr. Ondoro said they received tip off from the members of the public that the minors were partying in the said house with loud music causing disorder to neighboring homes.

During the raid, the administrators recovered bottles of alcohol, two packets of unused condoms and two motorbikes suspected to have been used to ferry the minors to the party.

The children are being held at the Ringa Police Station.
