Kenya: Drama as Suspects Arrive in Court 'Too Drunk' to Face Charges

Dramatic scenes played outside the Kibera Law Courts on Thursday morning after six suspects scheduled to appear in court blacked out from an alleged alcohol intoxication.

Pictures and videos aired by NTV captured the suspects sprawled on the ground in a drunken stupor.

Some police officers could be seen trying to prop them to walk, but the suspects were unconscious to respond to any probing.
