The Young Drug Addicts

By a female, under 16 years old, in Kisumu, Kenya
Map of THE YOUNG DRUG ADDICTS THIS BOY WHOSE NAME was called Treyo Fidelle was ever the top in any examination done in Sondu Primary school. In the next exams, his parent and even the teachers wondered why very many pupils were on top of him. The top subject had a percentage of 60. The father Mr. Jeremy, the senior teacher decided to watch on him. They realized that they were just by watching on a drug addict. HE was taking bhang, one of the most dangerous drugs in the world today. He was seen with some other boys at night. The father and the senior teacher went and fetched him immediately. He was taken to the hospital the next morning and the other boys to school. Fidelle Treyo was found to be hallucinating. He was well treated and the next day went to school. The punishment that the boys were given was even stronger than that of the tortoise of carrying a shell on its back. Read more.
