Uganda's “Lethal" CID Squad Seen In Kenya As More Details Emerge

The Ugandan police in collaboration with a non-governmental organization today, Thursday rescued 38 victims of human trafficking in Kenya. Charles Twiine, Uganda's Criminal Investigations Directorate (CID) spokesperson told an international media agency that his detectives were able to conduct a rescue mission in conjunction with “Make a Child Smile” - a local NGO. 

According to Twiine, the victims were housed in a hotel at the border, Busia and the victims were 31 females and 7 males all were Ugandans. 

According to the Uganda immigration department, human trafficking is a prevalent crime in Uganda adding that they are concerned as the country was increasingly being used as a transit route by traffickers who promise to take people to work in the Middle East. The challenge is shared across other Eastern African countries including Kenya, Tanzania, Eritrea and Ethiopia.
