Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI) Multiagency team has raided two colleges along 1st Avenue in Eastleigh Nairobi linked to the recruitment of terrorist groups. According to the DCI officials, the colleges Atlas and Alison Community college have been operating without the requisite licenses from TVETA and unregistered staff.
The DCI has also revealed that Somali refugees have been recruited into the institutions and taught English and Kiswahili languages. According to the DCI, the languages are used to groom the refugees for future terror operations.
“The colleges have been operating without the requisite licenses from TVETA and also enrol Somali refugees for language classes after which terror agents recruit students from the colleges for information gathering once they attain fluency,” DCI reported. During the operation, 43 individuals without requisite documentation were arrested. Two managers, one secretary, two teachers and thirty-eight students.
“Atlas college was found registered with TVETA but has been offering courses that are not covered under the TVETA license such as English and Kiswahili, whereas Alison community college was found not registered with TVETA.” DCI Statement read. Those arrested will be arraigned in court as further investigations are underway to establish the cartels behind the human trafficking syndicate.
