Parents of 38 Kisii teens quarantined for party drinking, engaging in sex, to pay Ksh28, 000 each.

The teenagers from Kemboa Village in Ogembo, Kisii County, who were on June 20 placed under mandatory quarantine after they were caught binging on illicit liquor and allegedly engaging in a sex party, will have to part with Ksh28, 000 each to secure their release.

Evans Getuma, Kisii County Medical Social Work lead, sent an SMS to parents of the 38 children on Thursday, July 2, asking them to pay Ksh28, 000 so that they can be reunited with the teens.

“Dear parent/guardian, this is to inform you that your daughter/son has completed the 14-day mandatory quarantine, and will be discharged upon payment of Ksh28, 000. Thanks,” reads the SMS authored by Getuma.

Thirty four (34) of the 38 teenagers were male, whereas four were female. They were aged between 14 years old and 20 years old, police said.

The 38 teens had been placed under quarantine at the Kisii High School for defying COVID-19 safety directives.

At the party scene on June 20, fourteen (14) used condoms were found.

All the 38 teens were taken into mandatory quarantine at Kisii High School.
