A video showing kids being intoxicated after consuming traditional brew, Busaa, in Kisii county has left many shocked.

In the undated clip, young girls (probably 10 years old) are captured struggling to walk as more busaa is served.

A girl is also heard telling the adult who was recording to stop filming as she took a big gulp of the brew from a jug.

This comes months after Police arrested 30 students who were allegedly drinking alcohol and engaging in a sex party in Migori County.

A survey on underage drinking in Kenya shows that about 36% of students consume alcohol.

Of those abusing the drink, female students account for 42%. Beers and spirits are the most consumed alcoholic beverages by minors at 59.8% and 58% respectively, according to the findings of the study.

The study also showed that 32% of the children living with single parents were consuming alcohol and those who live with their grandparents stand at 30%.

The 24-second clip has left tongues wagging with many calling for the arrest of the perpetrators.

Someone needs to be arrested @DCI_Kenya,” Mbugua Macharia said.

Where are the adults?” a Twitter user, Mali Mauzo posed.

“This is absurd, I think more sensitization on the need to actually keep the kids off such,” Shikoh Kihika added.

“Old traditional ways captured on the internet age. The parents should have defined the times though. Times are different now and things are scary doing and recording,” Janet Machuka said.
