16 unconscious school students involved in drinking spree

On Tuesday, December 14, 2021, 16 students from Gatitu Mixed Secondary School were arrested after engaging in a drinking spree.

The students, who have been detained at Makuyu and Kenol police stations, went on a drinking binge after their school closed for the holidays in December.

According to sources who spoke to K24 Digital, the students were apprehended in a number of Makuyu area bars and bush hideouts.

Officers have urged parents and guardians to move quickly and identify the students who are still unconscious.

When the rogue students were apprehended, they were heavily intoxicated.

Alcohol impairs both physical and mental abilities while also lowering inhibitions. Reduced inhibitions caused by drinking and intoxication may impair a young person’s ability to take the precautions required to reduce the risk of contracting the coronavirus or spreading it to others, such as maintaining appropriate physical distance and wearing a mask.

Encourage students to limit the amount of alcohol they or their friends consume, and remind underage students not to consume any alcohol.

According to the 2019 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), 52.5 per cent of full-time college students aged 18 to 22 consumed alcohol in the previous month, with 33.0 per cent binge drinking.

Binge drinking is defined by the NSDUH as 5 or more drinks on a single occasion for men and 4 or more drinks on a single occasion for women. (The NIAAA defines binge drinking as a pattern of alcohol consumption that results in a blood alcohol concentration [BAC] of 0.08 percent (or 0.08 grams of alcohol per deciliter) or higher.

This pattern corresponds to a typical adult consuming 5 or more drinks [male] or 4 or more drinks [female] in about 2 hours.) Furthermore, 8.2 per cent consumed excessive amounts of alcohol (defined by NSDUH as binge drinking on 5 or more days in the past month).

Students’ harmful and underage drinking has far-reaching, destructive, and costly consequences that many parents are unaware of. And whether students drink or not, these consequences affect them. Every year, researchers estimate:

Deaths: 1,519 college students between the ages of 18 and 24 die as a result of unintentional alcohol-related injuries, including motor vehicle accidents.

2 Assaults: Every year, 696,000 students aged 18 to 24 are assaulted by another student who has been drinking.

3 Sexual Assaults: Although estimating the number of alcohol-related sexual assaults is extremely difficult—because sexual assault is typically underreported—researchers have confirmed a long-standing finding that one in every five college women is sexually assaulted during their time in college.

4 The majority of sexual assaults in college are committed while under the influence of alcohol or other drugs. 5,6 More research is being conducted to better understand the links between alcohol and sexual assault among college students.
