During the arrest, police confiscated eight birthday cakes and impounded two minibusses and three matatus which the students had hired to travel to the area.

They were taken to Kianyaga police station and held for questioning.

All the drivers of the vehicles were also apprehended and booked at the same station.

After questioning, they were released on police bond pending court charges.

According to Kirinyaga East Sub-County police boss Anthony Wanjuu, the suspects were merry-making in the forest and did not have face masks on.

He said they were acting on a tip-off from area residents.

“The students had come all the way from Dagoretti in Nairobi for celebrations but they failed to observe Covid-19 rules,” he said.
