1000' underage drinkers arrested by police

Nairobi - Over 1,000 children suspected of under-age drinking were arrested in by police during a raid in the Nairobi CBD over the weekend, authorities said.
Confirming the raids to BBC, Nairobi central police chief Patrick Oduma said the move followed complaints that the bars and clubs were riddled with school children following the ongoing teachers' strike.
Most of the children were later released because there were not enough cells to hold them, although Oduma noted that it was the government's fault for not acting fast on the teachers strike to avert the crisis.
