LIST: 22 Foreigners arrested in Kabale


KABALE– The Police in Kabale have in their detention 14 Rwandan Nationals and 8 Congolese who were arrested aboard a Kampala bound bus along Kabale – Mbarara Road.

Kigezi Region Police Spokesman Elly Maate has confirmed that the 22 foreigners were picked from different buses at Nyakijumba Road block as they headed to Buganda.

Maate however said all the 22 had no travel documents to allow them enter Uganda which means they used porous illegal entry points.

He adds that such a big number of youth traveling without documents can not be taken for granted and therefore the Security Agencies in Kabale have picked interest in them and will be interrogated before they are taken to be charged in court and be deported thereafter.

A case of illegal entry into the country has been registered at Kabale Central Police station under reference number SD 33/11/05/2021 to help in Investigations.
