Back in 2019, police arrested over 30 teens going for a party in Isebania, Migori county raisin outcry among Kenyans
Police raided the club where they were enjoying their time and arrested the students some as young as 11 years.
And now detectives have raised the alarm that teens in Komarock and Kayole are being lured online by a Twitter handle @named Carty-gang-ent. It also includes what appears to be an international number that many KOT have since said is a scum phone number.
@eburebian said ..There are apps and sites that give random US numbers … usually meant for pranks and stuffs like that but apparently some bad guys take advantage of this and use the numbers for fraud
While Damieanus Oduor also agreed that….That number is a scam I am in USA I have called the number I have checked that number is a scam so it is not necessarily from USA
DCI notified Kenyans that
Detectives are investigating an online cartel that has been luring high school girls from their homes for partying orgies that goes on for days.
Preliminary investigations by the DCI have established the girls were lured out of their homes through a social media account named Carty-gang-ent.
The cartel has been using internationally-registered telephone numbers, although they operate from Nairobi.

They also added that
As the investigations go on, we wish to issue a stern warning to individuals taking advantage of the Covid-19 pandemic to prey on school girls who are at home, especially through the social media networks, that their days are numbered.
The DCI wishes to inform the public that we are hunting down members of the cartel and they’ll be apprehended to answer for their crimes. The DCI further warns parents to take keen interest in their children’s activities at home and on social media networks.
While being interrogated by detectives attached to DCI’s Anti-Human Trafficking and Child Protection Unit and the Crime Research and Intelligence Bureau, the young girls revealed how they were lured from their home and linked up in partying joints in Nairobi.
This follows public outcry from a relative who revealed that at least six girls have been missing pleading for help to find them as they feared for their safety.
