Kenya: 11 Ethiopian Immigrants Fined for Illegal Entry

ELEVEN Ethiopia nationals arrested on Monday for being in Kenya illegally have been fined Sh10,000 each or three-month jail terms.

The 11 yesterday pleaded guilty to the charges before chief magistrate Steven Riech and asked the court to forgive them. They were heading to South Africa when police arrested them at Mrima, Likoni subcounty, after a tip-off from the public.

Abdwahab Hussein was charged with harbouring the illegal immigrants.

Riech said after paying the fine or completing the jail term, the 11 will be deported to Ethiopia.
