Security officers in Kenya have arrested ninety-one Ethiopian nationals who were living in the country illegally during a crackdown in Kitengela, Kajiado.

The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) in a statement said: ‘they were arrested at a house within Milimani area” on Sunday evening.

“91, (of whom 44 are juveniles) were ferried to the location on board a trailer and were being held temporarily as the smugglers sought means to sneak them to another country,” the DCI stated on its twitter account.

The Ethiopian nationals were arrested after an earlier attempt to escape from a building where they had been detained.

Police say their smuggler is at large and attempts to arrest him are ongoing. Many Ethiopians are arrested in the country as they try to use this route to other places like Tanzania and South Africa.
