Kenya: Mombasa Detectives Arrest 11 Ethiopian Aliens Enroute to South Africa

By Nancy Agutu
Police detectives arrested eleven Ethiopian aliens on Tuesday night who were headed to South Africa from Likoni in Mombasa county.

The aliens were arrested in Soweto village where they were harboured in the house of Abdi Wahab Hussein.

Hussein is believed to have housed the suspects illegally without informing the police.

Likoni police boss Willy Simba said the aliens were headed to South Africa through the porous Lunga Lunga border.

He said that the suspects did not have valid documents for travel.

Simba added that they will liaise with the immigration department to be able to deport the suspects to Ethiopia.

The eleven were taken to Likoni police station.

He urged the public to be vigilant and inform the police over any suspicious characters within the area.

The eleven suspects will be charged in a Mombasa law court today.
