UASIN GISHU: Drama unfolded Tuesday at Kipkorgot Estate on the outskirts of Eldoret after five secondary school students were allegedly found having sex.

The four boys and a girl from different schools in Nandi, Uasin Gishu and Elgeyo Marakwet counties are reported to have been living together since schools opened for second term.

Kapsoya Assistant Chief Fiona Bartocho said she was told about the students Tuesday morning and when she went to check on them she was shocked to find the teenagers engaging in sex.

The administrator said they have informed the respective schools about the incident.

"We are investigating to find out if they have been abusing alcohol and other substances. My appeal to parents is to be keen about the behaviour of their children to prevent such acts," she said.

Rented room

The incident attracted scores of residents some of whom angrily beat up the teenagers.

Apparently, one of the youngsters' parents had rented a room for his son who in turn invited his colleagues to put up with him. All the students wore civilian clothes and had their school shopping intact when they were arrested.

Andrew Keitany, the landlord, explained that one of the boys' mother requested him to accommodate her son three months ago.

"Since I am a driver I usually leave for work early and arrive late. Thus I am not able to know who comes into the compound," he said.

But irate residents would hear none of this and instead caned him together with the students accusing him of abetting the children's decadent behaviour.

The landlord and the students were taken to Naiberi Police Station.

Residents, who informed the law enforcers, claimed the children have also been abusing drugs.

Caroline Kibet, a local, said it was unfortunate that the children's parents thought that their children were busy in school while instead, they were engaging in premarital sex.

"Parents should occasionally visit schools to check on the children's welfare because this is unacceptable," she advised.

Kipkorgot Estate Welfare Chairman Isaac Kipkorir said the incident has confirmed that parental guidance has diminished and urged parents to monitor their children at all times.

"We are lost for words because after contacting the children's parents, they responded that their children were all in school. This is a clear indication that there is no close monitoring of children," said Mr Kipkorir.
