Truck drivers smuggling young Kenyan girls into Uganda for sex trade

15 December 2015, 13:54 Jackson Okata

Nairobi - Long distance truck drivers along the Nairobi- Nakuru highway have been accused of illegally ferrying young Kenyan girls into Uganda for sex trade.

The Salgaa girl child welfare group has said that truck drivers have been luring young girls at Naivasha ,Gilgil and Salgaa towns using money and later take them to Uganda where they are sold to commercial sex work cartels.

Speaking Monday in Salgaa town during a protest, Mary Kirigo, the group's chair said that the truck drivers are making money at the expense of the young girls because they are paid by the cartels in Uganda to get them girls from Kenya.

"Truck drivers have moved from being clients to these sex workers to being agents of smuggling these girls into Uganda where they are later forced to engage in commercial sex work,"she said.

"The number of young Kenyan girls being ferried into Uganda has been increasing and this should be stopped,"she added.

Kidogo claimed that the truck drivers hide the girls inside the trucks and bribe border officers who latter allow them to smuggle the girls into Uganda.
