Mother charged with selling alcohol to son’s friends at Lang’ata party

A South Sudanese woman was on Friday charged with selling alcohol to youth at a house party in Phenom estate, Lang’ata area.

Mary Nyanyuk also faces two other counts of selling alcohol without a licence  at the Lang’ata party and being unlawfully present in Kenya.

Prosecution claimed Ms Nanyuk  was hosting the party to celebrate her son’s  performance in the Kenya Certificate Secondary Education (KCSE) exams whose results were released last week.

She denied the charges and was remanded until Monday next week.

Police were granted time to verify her passport she claimed was valid.

About 106 youths, some as young as 16 years, were arrested on Thursday in the house party held in the estate located near Carnivore Restaurant in Lang’ata.

The group comprised 72 boys and 34 girls — majority of whom had done their Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education last year.
