A third person believed to be an attendant was also charged for harbouring the two Ethiopians at the lodging.

Kamanza Bahati, who appeared before Senior Chief Magistrate Julius Nang’ea, denied the charge and was released on a Sh400, 000 bond.

The magistrate dismissed assertions by the two Ethiopians that they had fled from war in their country and ordered them to pay a Sh10, 000 fine or go to jail.
