The Fred’s Grammer mixed secondary school students are said to have boarded a 2NK Sacco at the Karatina bus stage and were headed to Nairobi.
According to the matatu driver, John Maina, a strong smell of bhang started emanating from the back of the vehicle as they approached Kibingoti along the Nyeri-Nairobi highway.
“Upon checking the rear view mirror, he was shocked to see billowing smoke as the seemingly excited teenagers passed a joint amongst themselves, while others imbibed alcoholic drinks. The concerned driver urged them to stop but the intoxicated students became unruly threatening him with dire consequences,” said DCI in a statement.
