Nairobi - Police in Kenya have arrested five high school students, who were allegedly found having sex in Eldoret.

According to The Standard, the four boys and a girl from different schools in Nandi, Uasin Gishu and Elgeyo Marakwet counties were reported to have been living together since schools opened for second term.

Kapsoya Assistant Chief Fiona Bartocho said she was alerted about the development by the public, adding that upon her arrival at the scene, she was shocked to find the teenagers in the act. 

Kenyans.co.ke said that angry residents flocked the scene and pounced on the students, giving them a thorough beating for what they termed "uncouth behaviour".

Earlier this year, police banned a party dubbed Project X which was to take place in Nairobi where it was believed under-age sex and drinking was to take place.

The Star reported that a tweet posted on the Kenya National Police Service account said the party, as announced could have been associated with activities that “run counter to our moral fabric and in breach of law”.

"We are taking action aimed at establishing what the organisers are planning. We will not allow events where illegalities are committed to take place," a statement from the police read.
