Police now link Project X sex party to terrorism

A highly publicised sex and drugs party might be the latest tactic by extremists to lure youths into terrorism, police have warned.

Police spokesman George Kinoti said undercover officers have been ordered to penetrate Project X, scheduled for Saturday, with the aim of interrogating the organisers.

The event is supposed to take place at an undisclosed venue in the upmarket Kileleshwa neighbourhood, Nairobi, and promises to offer sex, alcohol, drugs and strip shows to those in attendance.

CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES

“We shall be there before it happens. Who knows it is not meant to lure youths, then expose them to easy life, then criminal activities, radicalisation and eventually terrorism? We are aware terrorists are always devising new ways to destabilise national security,” said Mr Kinoti.

He added: “Our attention has been drawn to the hue and cry over an ongoing advertisement inviting interested youths to attend a party dubbed Project X to be held on March 12 at a venue believed to be in Kileleshwa. Concerns have been raised that the party could be associated with activities that are in breach of the law.”
