NAIROBI
By CYRUS OMBATI | April 15th 2015

Nairobi, Kenya: More than 40 Ethiopians were Tuesday night arrested from two separate houses in Kiamaiko and Eastleigh area, Nairobi for being in the country illegally.

Police said the men did not have travel documents and they were headed for South Africa when they were nabbed.

Twenty four of them were arrested in Eastleigh and 16 in Kiamaiko.

Starehe OCPD Bernard Nyakwaka said the aliens told police they had been brought there by an agent and were to be picked to continue with their journey to South Africa.

“They had arrived in groups before being booked into the houses. They lived in an unfavourable environment and we are looking for the agent as we prepare charges for the aliens,” said Nyakwaka.

Police say the men cannot communicate in English or Swahili.
