Bungoma, Kenya: Two terror suspects have been arrested by police in Bungoma after their attempts to cross over to Uganda were thwarted.

The two were in possession of a digital camera bearing photographs of some buildings in the region.

Bungoma County Commissioner Mohamed Maalim said police confiscated digital cameras, four mobile phones, 8 mobile phone chargers and solar panel used to charge the phones from the suspects.

He said the suspects, identified as Onesmus Dennis Muli from Makueni County and Destereo Oduor from Busia County, reside in Mtwapa, Mombasa and were arrested while trying to cross over to Uganda.

"Members of the public raised an alarm and notified immigration officers and security agents. Communication items and a camera were recovered after a search," said Maalim.

"After interrogating the two suspects, we also realized that they were in possession of female Identification Cards" he added.

The suspects said they were heading to Mbale town in Uganda but did not disclose their mission.

"I must applaud members of the public and Nyumba Kumi officials for being vigilant," he said.
