Director of the Uasin Gishu Alcoholic Drinks Control Board, Armstrong Rono said the raids are way to curb illegal groups attracting young people in committing illegal activities.

Following the incident, two clubs were shut down for admitting minors.

According to police, youths paid Sh500 so they could partake in Project X parties which have been attracting underage drinking.

However, according to the organisers of the various parties over the weekend their parties are not linked to Project X.

In a separate article from The Star Nairobi City County Governor, Evans Kidero condemned underage drinking.

Speaking to the youth at Starehe SDA Church before the weekend arrests he warned of the growing problem in the city.

"As a father and a leader I will not allow events like Project X to happen under watch.We need to instil discipline in our youth. Due process of the law will be followed to ensure the organiser is prosecuted," Kidero urged.

The initial poster published promoting Project X parties with the slogan, 'No one goes home a virgin... Project X' has caused much cause for concern for Government.
