CS Matiang’i speaks on illegal teen parties gaining momentum

Interior CS Fred Matiang’i has finally spoken on illegal teen parities unearthed in Nairobi in the recent days.

Speaking during a recent interview, the CS warned parents that they were fully responsible for their children, noting that the government will not raise children for them.

“Let’s not be hypocritical, parental responsibility in the country is very low. The society and the government will not raise your children for you,” he cautioned.

This came days after seven girls went missing in Nairobi’s Komarock area only to turn out that they sneaked from their homes to attend a party.

Initial reports indicated that the girls left their home at night after receiving a call from an American number.

“We are very worried after her disappearance because she is a minor and does not have any identification documents so she can easily be trafficked out of the country.

“She left the house at night on Saturday and used the mum’s phone to call the international number because her phone was confiscated by the parents so we cannot even reach her,” one of the girls’ cousin said.

However, the girls later dismissed abduction and kidnapping reports, saying that they disappeared as they were bored staying indoors.

“I would not be here if it were not for the angle the whole thing has taken on social media, with people trolling us,” Natalie told reporters.

She added that once the drama surrounding their disappearance cools down, they will plan another getaway to have fun.

Natalie further said that Shanice Muoka – one of the seven girls – would just laugh if she saw the video of her cousin asking for help to locate her.

“I’m sure if Shanice (one of the other missing girls) were to see this video, she would just laugh it off because she does not care,” Natalie stated.

She noted that it was normal for Shanice to disappear and appear whenever she wanted.
