The Kenya police has confirmed arresting two terror suspects in Bungoma town who said they were headed to Uganda from Mtwapa in Mombasa.
The two – Onesmus Dennis Mulli and Destereo Oduor – were found to be in possession of digital cameras, four mobile phones and eight phone chargers, Bungoma county police boss Mohamed Maalim told journalists.
“After interrogating the two suspects, we also realised that they were in possession of female identification cards,” Maalim is quoted by The Standard.
They were headed to Mbale town.
Only yesterday (Wednesday August 12) police arrested two other people in Nyamira taking photos of buildings in the town and were transferred to the anti-terror police unit in Kisumu.
