Kenyan Police round up and charge 90 Ethiopian nationals

A Kibera magistrate Grace Nzioka on Friday ordered 89 foreigners who were living in the country illegally to pay a fine of 10,000 shillings each and be deported immediately. The 89 Ethiopians who were arrested mid-week risk a jail sentence of 3 months should they fail to pay the fine and will be deported after serving the sentence. Nimrod Tabu reports. Earlier on Wednesday police in Nairobi arrested some 90 foreigners who were crammed in a single house in one of the suburbs. Investigators believe the Ethiopians, most of them without travel documents, were on their way to South Africa. And as Yassin Juma reports, police are now looking for an Ethiopian woman said to be behind the syndicate. Source (African News)
