Police ambush 20 illegal migrants hiding in a Murang’a forest

24 October 2015, 09:24 Joseph Njung'eh

Murang'a - Police in Murang’a nabbed 20 illegal migrants hiding in Kariguini forest in Kware area Friday.

Murang’a South Administration Police commandant, Richard Rotich said the migrants, all men aged between 18 and 30 years, are believed to be of Ethiopian origin.

Rotich said they were heading to Nairobi to catch a flight to South Africa.

“They could not speak either English or Kiswahili. They were arrested by administration police officers from Makuyu area who were acting on information provided by members of the public,” said Rotich.

He added that police are investigating where the men had come from and who dumped them in the forest, adding that they did not have any travel documents.

He also noted that they will be arraigned in court for being in Kenya illegally since security issues cannot be taken lightly.

The incident happened one day after another group of 15 Ethiopians was nabbed by Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) soldiers at Archers Post, Isiolo County, preparing to travel Nairobi en-route to South Africa
