Appearing before a Murang’a Court, the three were to have been found selling phones in Murang’a town without valid documents on November 18.

The Prosecutor, Cecilia Kinyanjui told the court that the three were arrested as they were trying to sell Samsung mobile phones at a cheap price to local residents, something which prompted the residents to be suspicious and thus alerting area police.

“The trio claimed that they were selling their phones to raise fare to travel to Nairobi, but upon police investigations, the foreigners had more phones which were meant for sale,” added Kinyanjui.
