Scores of Eldoret residents, mainly parents and relatives, on Monday thronged the divisional police headquarters to secure the release of 550 students.
Police had arrested the students in a swoop on Sunday night in a basement club called Sam’s Discotheque.
It was an embarrassing scene as the police seized alcohol, marijuana and miraa (khat) from the students. Condoms were strewn all over the underground discotheque.
Ironically, the underground discotheque is exactly opposite the police headquarters, barely 50 metres away.
