Which drugs do people use to spike drinks at social venues?
The Star took out to investigate.
For Stephen, the drug that was used on him is called Rohypnol.
These drugs are in the form of tablets and can be crushed and snorted up the nose or dissolved in a liquid prior to drinking.
Also known as bugizi, rape drug, forget me drug, circles or lunch money drug it is a colourless and odourless pill.
It retails at Sh850 at local chemists and online pharmacies.
The pill is preferred for its colourless and odourless characteristic when added to drinks or food.
The liquid form can also be applied to women’s breasts and sucked by men.
A police source who asked for anonymity says criminals prefer to have them in powder form for ease of spiking.
“The pill is grounded to powder and can be added to drinks or food without one noticing for it’s colourless and odourless,” he said.
According to Dr Faith Mwangagi, the drug causes sedative effects.
The action of the drug is experienced 20 minutes after administration and can last for six to seven hours.
For some, the effect can last for 12 hours or more after administration.
“The action of Rohypnol appears in 20 minutes after administration and lasts six to seven hours,” she said.
If wrongly administered she said it causes slurred speech, inability to concentrate, poor coordination, dizzy feelings, lack of inhibition, nausea and amnesia.
Rohypnol may also be used with other drugs of abuse, such as alcohol or cocaine for various effects.
Rohypnol can increase the intoxication of alcohol or may be used to lower the irritability and anxiety linked with excessive cocaine use (binging).
Dr Geoffrey Mutuma says Valium at lower doses helps ease pain, reduce anxiety and relax muscles.
He said short term use is generally safe and effective.
When misused it causes some to sleep and feel out of touch with their surrounding.
“Valium is a sedative. It relaxes muscles but if misuses it makes one oversleep,” he said.
He said Valim does not kill when used in overdose but instead makes one sleep for even two days.
Ketamine helps sedatives work and may help people need fewer addictive painkillers, like morphine after surgery or while caring for burns.
When misused, ketamine can change your sense of sight and sound.
“You can have hallucinations and feel out of touch with your surroundings and even from yourself, “Mutuma said.
He said Ketamine can make it hard to speak or move, and it’s been abused as a date-rape drug.
He said its overdose does not kill.
It can reduce bodily sensations, prompting a floating feeling which can render you immobile – an experience which is sometimes referred to as “entering a k-hole” in instances when the drug is taken recreationally.
It can also provoke hallucinations, panic attacks and memory loss.
The effects can begin after five minutes of taking the drug and a “trip” normally lasts between 30 minutes and several hours.
Teachers pets can’t relate to this cruel punishment.

It’s pretty scary if you are just chilling home, relaxing on lockdown with your family and thieves are at the back of the house creeping in. That’s what Shawn Mendes and Camilla experienced.
1. Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello
A car was stolen on Sunday March 28 form their Los Angeles home. The two were home when thieves broke in through a window, according to local media.
The thieves took a set of keys and drove off in one of Shawn’s SUV vehicles.
Sources told TMZ that the pair were home when the assailants made their way in through a window — however, they’re both safe. The outlet also reported that the suspects made a quick getaway when they realized the A-listers were home, and made off in Shawn’s Mercedes G-Wagon. Police were called to the house and the LAPD investigation is ongoing, although no arrests have been made.
Just days after she celebrated her record-breaking number of Grammy Awards, on Friday March 26, thieves got away with merchandise belonging to the singer including handbags, toys, and photos from one of the “Drunk in Love” singer’s stylists.
Thieves made off with luxury handbags and costly dresses worth more than $1 million from Beyoncé’s storage units in Los Angeles, said Los Angeles police, according to TMZ.
Reports say that there now have been two robberies within a week, said TMZ, adding, “burglars took down three storage units in the same facility, making off with handbags, kid’s toys and photos belonging to one of Beyonce’s stylists”.
In January, Miley Cyrus’ storage space was broken into with thieves making away with clothes, photographs and other personal items, according to the LAPD.
In February, Ludacris was robbed of his Mercedes as he used an ATM.

Girls are losing their minds over the period pimple that won’t go away. Me too sis!.
Females are already dealing with bloating, moodiness, and cramps every month, and then mother nature decides to add that ka pimple that sits right in the middle of you face.
During the first half of your menstrual cycle, your estrogen level rises, and for the second half of the cycle, the levels of progesterone rise. As your period approaches, the levels of both of these hormones fall. Meanwhile, your levels of testosterone stay about the same. This means that before and during your period, your testosterone activity is relatively higher than that of estrogen and progesterone.
There are two types of pimples/breakouts. One is blackheads and the other is whiteheads.
Blackheads are clogged pores that open on the skin’s surface. They look black because of their exposure to oxygen.
Whiteheads are under the surface of the skin.
Besides blackheads and whiteheads, here are other types of breakouts you can expect.
1. Papules which are small raised red bumps that occur due to infection and inflammation of hair follicles
2. Pustules which are small red pimples with a white or yellowish pus-filled center
3. Nodules which are solid, painful lumps underneath the skin
4. Cysts which are large lumps that are underneath the skin, generally painful, and contain pus
Am I the only woman or does every time that you guys get your period you at least get one pimple and It’s the worst pimple that you can ever get
look some of us are sitting here with PERIOD PIMPLES and UNPLUCKED EYEBROWS this is just rude
My period pimple comes in the same area/spot every month
my skin has been soooo clear and my period came and said
three things in life are certain: birth, death, and this pimple that does take up residence in the middle of my forehead every time I got my period
There’s one particular dating topic that always seems to arouse a heated discussion: the age-old question of whether you should split the bill.
The question about it is going viral on Tiktok with girls showing how horrified they are that a man dares think about asking her to chip in.
The single girls are ranting that if a dude wants to split the bill instead of paying for everything, then that suggests he is a cheap man, who should be ghosted.
A twitter user Burgermoyo @OllieMutai_even asked the question “Mlisema hii mambo ya bill kwa date inafaa kuwa aje wakurugenzi? How y’all do it? Naona ati if you ask a lady on a date you’re supposed to pay the bill. Aight I am just learning from y’all.”
The answers are quite telling, with many split how to tackle it.
If you invite someone for a date the bill should be on you unless you stated otherwise when inviting them
You are the prize, set your own standards. Make sure your upfront and straight forward about it, she will decide on her own. Nyege ni ku nyegezana.
We could split it, and if he can’t split the bill I’d pay, but we prolly wouldn’t go on another date, bc he’s the one who asked me out
Face with raised eyebrow
I think whoever initiates the date pays
But If you guys have something like a date night ama regular dates, like every Monday Y’all meet, that one Y’all could split the bill.
The worlds se3iest man will have a new title as he debuts as the director of the movie ‘Creed’.
Michael B Jordan will be stepping behind the camera in addition to starring in the film which will be released in November 2022.
The American actor is best-known for his role in the popular “Creed” movies as well as Black Panther.
Creed is an extension of the “Rocky” series featuring Sylvester Stallone. In Creed 1 and 2, Jordan takes on the role of Adonis Creed, son of deceased boxing legend Apollo Creed. Despite his inherited wealth, Adonis must work his way up from the bottom rung to the boxing ring.
“Directing has always been an aspiration, but the timing had to be right,” Jordan said in an official statement. “Creed 3 is that moment–a time in my life where I’ve grown more sure of who I am, holding agency in my own story, maturing personally, growing professionally, and learning from greats like Ryan Coogler, most recently Denzel Washington, and other top tier directors I respect. All of which sets the table for this moment.”
International women’s day served as a surprise for many when Lupita Nyongo shared a clip on her social media about an online short series for children.
The show is about Sema, a ten year old Kenyan girl with super powers. Lupita partnered with a Kenyan start up for this new YouTube Originals kids and family program. She also voices a character in the series that has 12 episodes.
The Black Panther star shared a video on Instagram with behind-the-scenes footage of herself recording the Super Sema trailer.
“She’s a maker, creator, a super technovator,” Lupita sings in the theme song. “Who is this girl who’s gonna change the world? It’s super super super Sema . . . It’s time to show the world what every kid can do, ’cause you can change the world. Yeah, you are super, too!”
“I am grateful that these women are helping to eradicate the scarcity of Black female protagonists in television and am honored to work alongside them,. There has been historically a stubborn ignorance and underestimation of the African entertainment market . . . The more African stories we tell, the more emboldened we as Africans get, and the more global curiosity we create and serve.”
Episodes of Super Sema aim to teach young viewers about science, math, technology, engineering, art, and more.
“As a Kenyan, I could not be prouder of Super Sema’s introduction to the world and the opportunities that Kukua provides for our local creative community to produce entertainment that reflects our culture.” Watch the series trailer and the first eight episodes with the little one in your life here.
American rapper Big Sean on multiple occasions put a gun to his head, over being stressed out and not being happy with life.
He discussed his personal mental health struggles during an interview on Michael Eric Dyson’s Facebook Watch show,“One Question, One Mike,”
Sean admitted to ignoring his mental health to achieve his career goals.
“Those are the stigmas that have been placed on us growing up. If you a man and you not working hard, it’s like, ‘Ah you getting soft.’ So that was always in the back of my head, so I’m working exhausting myself for years and years and years. I couldn’t get through the day without feeling terrible.”
At one point, Sean’s mental health got so bad, he said he considered taking his own life. “I was sure contemplating suicide a lot of times, you know, having guns in my hands and just really feeling it for real…even planning it out to the point where like, ‘Hey, if I do kill myself at least my family will get this amount of money,’” he explained. “Because I just was stressed out and not happy. I realized that I need to stop everything I’m doing and figure this out or I’ma self-destruct.”
He continued, “I took the time off, canceled everything I was doing, sought therapy, connected with God more, spiritually grounded myself and put myself first as a priority for the first time ever.”
Do you regularly go for a brazilian/bikini wax or are you thinking about going for one? And more importantly, do you feel insecure or kinda embarrassed?
Getting your first bikini wax is not a fun experience for most people. That said, it’s a longer-lasting method to removing your hair downstairs rather than shaving, with the smoothness from a bikini wax lasting for two to four weeks, rather than days,
Aye I Just Got My First Bikini Wax And All I Can Say Is OMGGGGGG THAT WAS DEFINITELY A “FIRST TIME” I Will Neva Forget 😂😂😂
Here are thoughts that go through our minds when headign to the salon for waxing:
Should I wear a panty?
Errm yes sis. What about after the appointment? Will you just walk around commando?
2. Do I need to preshave?
Hairs should be about 1/4 inches long.
A big mistake many women make before their first waxing session: shaving. Wax can’t pick up your hairs when they’re too short, so Queen Bee Salon & Spa owner Jodi Shays recommends trimming it to about a quarter of an inch. If you’re unsure of how long that is, just leave it alone. You can call the spa or salon beforehand and let your waxer know that you will need her to trim your hairs before your wax. For this reason, avoid shaving between waxes.
3. Should I scrub and shower?
Take a shower that day.
This may seem obvious, but it’s worth a reminder. You’ll feel less self-conscious before your bikini waxing session. Who wants to open your legs with a little odour? Also exfoliating opens up your pores, making the actual process less painful. Use baby powder before the waxing.
4. Will I have to be fully undressed?
Your lower half will be fully exposed.
Before your wax, you will have to remove off your inner wear, there’s no way around that girls. You have to be completely n*ked from below the waist and what’s more the person waxing has seen plenty of that, sio yako tuu.
5. Does it hurt?
It hurts some people more than others.
I usually let out a scream, no shame for me. Coarse and thick body hair is more stubborn to remove, so you may experience more redness in the waxed area. Waxes work by sticking to hair, removing it at the root when the wax is pulled off. So take the pain like a big girl, won’t you?
Yummy Mummy aka Joan will be getting cosmetic surgery as a gift to herself for turning 31.
She announced on March 2nd that as she turns 31, “My third and final birthday present to myself is a tummy tuck which I will be getting soon. Guys I can’t tell you how excited I am about this. After 3 kids, it really doesn’t matter how much I work out, – that lose skin on my lower belly is permanent and I dislike it alot.”
She added that “I’ve been debating in my mind whether or not I want to document the whole process, on social media or not.”
An abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, is an elected procedure done to remove excess skin from the abdomen and make the patient’s stomach flatter. Several famous people have had tummy tucks, usually after giving birth or losing a lot of weight. Some celebrities are very open about their choice to go under the knife, while others deny ever having had any work done.
Risper Faith is one who was open about unhappiness with her look and documented the process going as far as sharing the medical facility where she went int he hopes of helping others. And we applaud this.
Dear Classic 105 fam, have you ever considered a tummy tuck?

How much Kenyan men are spending at the barbers is a real discussion we need to have. While some part with a hundred bob, others spend as much as 15,000 to shave. Yes you read that right, according to an Instagram chat Terence Creative had with men.
Through his Instagram stories, Terence asked men how much they use and he was blown away by the person who admitted they spend Sh150,000. A hundred and fifty thousand? Wait is that a typing error? I hope so.
Recently Betty Kyallo opened her mens parlour and when asked how much it costs to shave, she indicated it costs 800 bob and people said it’s expensive. She was trolled for a bit. So what will people say about this?
To groom, Terence spends a hundred bob at a local and always shares why he does it at the mtaa.
Men confessed how much they pay and I must say as a woman I am envious. A hundred bob?
