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.

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.
