Pastor arrested after TEN minors are found in a lodging 

SDA pastor arrested after TEN minors from Marsabit are found in Kisii lodging in a suspected child trafficking syndicate.

Police in Kisii have detained a preacher linked to a suspected child trafficking syndicate after 10 minors from Marsabit were rescued from a lodging in Kisii town. 

The rescue mission caused tension in the neighborhood as interested locals demanded to know the reason for the children’ hidden confinement amid rumors of cultic involvement.

Residents stormed the facility after news went round that 10 minors were detained there by unknown individuals.

The 10 minors who appeared malnourished ranged in age from 4 to 10, were saved by police officers . They  told authorities that they hail from Marsabit.

According to witnesses, the children were brought to the lodging by two individuals.

“They came the other day at around 6.00 pm. They were making many calls,” Teresa Bonareri, the lodging attendant said.

DCI officers are holding the Adventist preacher, who claimed that he had ferried the minors to Kisii town to provide them with better living conditions. 

According to Kisii Police commander Charles Kases, the suspects said the children were on transit to Eberege SDA church in Kenyenya. 

“We have received calls from Marsabit saying the children were brought here illegally. No procedure was followed,” Kases said. 

However, the SDA church leadership in Kisii County has distanced itself from claims that it had offered to assist the minors by providing them with a rescue home. 

The detectives are trying to establish whether the secret detention of the minors is linked to a child trafficking syndicate.
