Ethiopian aliens fined KES 400 000 each

26 June 2013, 14:40 Wangui Joseph

Ten men of Ethiopian origin were on Wednesday fined KES 400 000 each by a Nyeri magistrate court in default serve two years in jail for being in the country illegally.

Chief Magistrate Wilbrodah Juma issued the ruling after the accused persons admitted to the charges of being in the country unlawfully on May 18, 2013 at Gathiuru forest in Narumoru, within Nyeri County.

When they were first arraigned in court on Monday, they could not take plea for lack of an interpreter since they could not understand or communicate either in Swahili or English and their case had to be adjourned.

Inspector Stanselous Mwangi told the court that the accused persons were arrested following a tip off from area residents.

They informed police officers from Narumoru police station that ten people who were not known to them had been spotted entering the forest.

He said after arrest, the suspects were found without proper identification documents.

Through an interpreter, the accused persons prayed for forgiveness, but the magistrate said the sentence was what was provided under the Kenya Citizenship and Immigration Act 2011.
