Police are holding 13 students from Dandora High School who were arrested on Wednesday afternoon following complaints of their indecent behaviour from members of the public.

The six girls and seven boys were found in part of their school uniforms but with t-shirts emblazoned with curious messages.

Buruburu DCI Jeremiah Ikiao told Nairobi News that the arrested students were found in possession of several knives, 21 roles of marijuana, several tablets and other paraphernalia.

DEVIANT BEHAVIOUR

“We found the students still in their school uniforms but with t-shirts which had strange writings on them. The tablets have been taken to the government chemist for analysis,” said Ikiao.

He added that the 13 minors were due to be taken to the Makandara Court on Thursday but did not specify what charges they would be answering to.

Their arrests come in the wake of increased cases of student unrest in secondary schools across the country and widespread incidents of deviant behavour by pupils and students.

Just this week, 10 pupils from Thawabu Primary School in Kayole were arrested after being found engaging in underage sex at one of their school mate’s home while in March, five boys were discovered hiding in the dormitory of a neighbouring girls’ school that was on strike.
