Ninety-one Ethiopians living illegally in Kenya have been arrested.
They were arrested at a house within the Milimani area of Kitengela, Kajiado County, south of Nairobi.
It is purported the immigrants were smuggled into Kenya from neighbouring countries.
Preliminary investigations by police reveal that the 91, of whom 44 are juveniles were ferried to the location onboard a trailer, and were being held temporarily as the smugglers sought means to sneak them to another country.
“We are probing further into the case owing to the recent influx of immigrants, with the aim of paralyzing probable human trafficking activities and nab the perpetrators,” said the Directorate of Criminal Investigations.
Meanwhile, the suspects have been booked in various police stations for interrogation and other legal procedures.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
