The government which allows loopholes into legal businesses in not good enough to be trusted by the people!
It so happens that majority of people taking part in illegal trade are well know members of the society but some immune to the law which should serve all irrespective of their statuses in the country.
Recently, there was a public outcry that Kenya is the highway for illegal trade. Majority of those arrested came from West Africa— they were got trafficking drugs, elephant and rhino trophies and even innocent unsuspecting humans, mostly small children.
The ring of human traffickers is deep rooted in the society. The midwives in some clinics and rogue public health workers are doing this business behind victim’s knowledge. In most cases, they work closely with people who buy and sell children as middlemen.
In the most recent incident, the Kenya police officers arrested a group of women suspected in human trafficking racket in Nairobi area. The seven were arrested when members of the public demanded to see the baby born a day earlier. It was then that the mother took them to the midwife, who handled her delivery, and another woman suspected to be the broker who was later arrested in connection to the missing infant.
The police in their report said that the channel of human trafficking goes deeper that what they through. They confirmed that have already identified the suspected and other people in connection to this illegal business happening daily in Kenya. Three of the suspects are said to have come from the lake city Kisumu and others are from Nairobi. The big fish in this trade is yet to be identified but the police are still investigating links that might unravel the truth.
The UN named Kenya’s Port as the main illegal operations point for most drug and human traffickers. Even thought the country is doing a lot to curb the menace, rogue port officials are so corrupt that they can do anything for a small pay.
