The Kenyan government has warned commuter bus companies and other transporters against aiding aliens from neighbouring Somalia to make their way to the Kenyan capital, Nairobi.
According to Northeastern Regional Commissioner Mohamed Birik, bus companies and transporters in the region play a significant role in the matters of the transit of terrorists, in this case, members of the Al Shabaab and Islamic State.
The commissioner has accused the bus drivers for engaging illicit businesses and as a result selling out their own country to jihadist aiming to launch offensives on the country. The militants are said to purport to be civilians in dire need along deserted areas along the route. Some even pretend to be ferrying members of their kin to hospital in order to board the buses.
The administrator said to curb the vice, the government will increase and enhance the roadblocks and in particularly the Modigar and Tana Bridge. Also, Cases of human smuggling have been on the rise in the region with hundreds of young men from neighbouring countries finding their way into South Africa through Kenya in search of employment.
Authorities say several aliens who find their way into the Kenyan police cells have tripled in the past few weeks overstretching the capacity of the cells in the state.
