Policemen who took photos of bhang smoking, sex students face probe

08 August 2015, 20:46 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Policemen who took photos of students smoking bhang and engaging in sex in a matatu face a possible sanction from the Police Oversight Authority IPOA.

IPOA in a statement Friday stated that it was out of order for the policemen to take such compromising photos of the students even if indeed they were not acting within the law.

IPOA boss Macharia Njeru says that the police officers would be investigated and punished if found guilty.

" IPOA is greatly concerned about reports emerging especially in the social media which appear to indicate that the students who were arrested in the bus headed for Nairobi were subjected to treatment that appear not to have been in consonance with the afore-cited constitutional postulates," the statement said.

" Pictures availed to IPOA and which are presently doing the rounds in the social media depict a number of young girls said to be the arrested students in various humiliating poses, exposing their private parts and with their faces clearly visible," Njeru added.

On Wednesday, the students were arrested in the bus for fornicating, drinking and smoking bhang in the bus.

Police were alerted by residents of Kibirigwi and Kiangwachi trading centres along Karatina-Nairobi road.
