A secondary school teacher and a trader have been arrested in Migori County after they were found in a lodging with primary school girls from Tanzania.
Police acting on a tip-off from members of the public picked up the two on Tuesday morning from a guest house at Nyabohanse trading centre in Kuria West Sub-County.
The two men 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.
The suspects were taken to Isebania Police Station where they were locked up for interrogation.
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 incident attracted a crowd of on-lookers as the duo and their victims were being bundled into a police vehicle.
The girls said they came from Tarime District in Tanzania.
“The police found us relaxing with Guinness and Coca Cola drinks which the men had bought us,” said one of the girls.
