39 teenagers were arrested at a house party at Bondeni Estate in Muhoroni.
The teens were aged between 12 and 22 years according to Muhoroni Deputy Commissioner Erick Wanyonyi who confirmed the incident.
Wanyonyi also warned that police officers will now start arresting parents of minors, accusing them of negligence.
“If you cannot take care of your children, and they are arrested in parties during this time, you will also face the law,” Wanyonyi said.
On Tuesday, Health Ministry CAS Dr Rashid Aman noted that the recent infections were among young people.
“We need to make our message neutral…that this pandemic is a threat to everybody. Before we focused on the elderly but let’s emphasize that this disease is a threat to everybody.” He said,.
He urged the Kenyan youth to stop reckless behaviour to avoid spreading the virus at a time when Kenya has recorded 30,636 cases of the novel coronavirus.
