BY CYRUS OMBATI, February 24th 2015 :

Nairobi, Kenya: More than 100 Ethiopians were Monday night arrested in Tasia, Nairobi for being in the country illegally.

The 101 men said they were headed for South Africa and had stopped at the house for refreshments, when they were nabbed by officers from Special Crimes Prevention Unit. Police say the suspects had arrived earlier Monday from Ethiopia in separate buses, when an informer tipped them off.

“The men did not have travelling documents to show they were here legally. They are deemed illegal immigrants,” said head of SCPU Noah Katumo The officers are also holding three Kenyans, who were hosting the aliens. They are expected in court Tuesday morning.

Police and immigration officials have decried increased cases of Ethiopian aliens are nabbed in the country while on transit to either Tanzania or South Africa.
