Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) have arrested 20 suspected illegal immigrants in Moyale, Isiolo and Marsabit.

Nine of the suspects said to be of Ethiopian origin were arrested on Saturday night in Moyale.

Seven others from Congo were nabbed in Isiolo after a Moyale-bound Star Bus they were traveling in from Nairobi was intercepted.

”Of the seven Congolese, five were under-age and upon interrogations, it was established that they were from a Uganda refugee camp,” said the DCI in a statement.

Meanwhile, four Eritrean nationals aged between 20 and 25 were arrested in Marsabit North at Turbi Trading Centre.

The suspects are expected to be arraigned next week.
