Two suspects were on Thursday, December 29, arrested for allegedly giving a 3-year-old boy alcohol at a Christmas party in Nairobi.

Edward Ndirangu Muhuka, aged 22, and Abdulmajid Hassan Arafat, 19, were picked from their slumber in Thindigua and Pangani estates respectively by detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigation’s Child Protection Unit after a viral video showing one of the suspects offering scotch whiskey to the minor at a party they attended on December 25.

According to the DCI, the detectives swung into action after the disturbing video was shared by former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko on his online platforms.

“Shocked netizens including detectives monitoring online activities, who escalated the information to undercover sleuths specialised in hunting down child offenders,” DCI said.
