Court repatriates 73 Ethiopians caught at Balambala crash


SOME 73 Ethiopians were yesterday charged with being in Kenya illegally. The immigrants are believed to be part of a human trafficking business in Garissa. They were arrested on Sunday at Hagarjarer, Balambala subcounty.

The suspected human traffickers fled after the lorry they were travelling in was involved in an accident. The immigrants sneak into Kenya at the Moyale border, through the Isiolo-Garbatula route.

Police said the driver and the smuggler are yet to be arrested. Garissa chief magistrate Margaret Wachira ordered the immigrants be repatriated to their country. She directed that five others who sustained injuries during the accident to be treated at the Garissa Referral Hospital.

Smugglers have hatched a new way of evading security checks after security along the Moyale-Isiolo route was heightened. They use alternative routes like the Isiolo-Balambala-Garissa to reach Nairobi.
