Two men have been arrested after they were found in a guest house with primary school girls from neighbouring Tanzania.
Police acting on a tip-off from members of the public apprehended the suspects on Tuesday morning from a guest house at Nyabohanse trading centre in Kuria West Sub-County, Migori County.
The suspects, a secondary school teacher and a trader, had walked into the guest house in the company of the Tanzanian girls aged 15 and 16, forty minutes before the police swung into action.
Confirming the arrest, Kuria West police boss Benson Kyalo said the girls were taken for medical tests whose report will be used to prosecute the suspects.
“They are going to face relevant charges in court. Adults must respect the rights of children,” he said.
The girls said they came from Tarime District in Tanzania.
“The police found us relaxing with Guinness and Coca-Cola sodas which the men had bought us,” said one of the girls.
