According to sources, the Ugandan women were being trafficked by a Kenyan woman by the name Dorothy Katunge Mulavu. Ms, Mulavu will be arraigned in court tomorrow
Th women being trafficked were promised jobs, a trend that has been rampant in the East African countries. Victims of trafficking end up facing mistreatment, assault and even some die in the foreign countries.
The crackdown comes months after Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’s declared war on illegal immigrants and foreigners doing jobs that should be done by Kenyans.
