Police in Kayole Sub-County in Nairobi are asking parents who have lost their children in unclear circumstances to make reports at the nearest police station.

This is after 16 children were found in a house in an incident that police suspect involves human trafficking.

Any parent who is within the city has been asked to go to Kayole Police Station and assist in the identification process which is currently ongoing.

Police and the children’s department in the city are looking forward to linking up the children with their parents.

“The parents should come with their Identity cards and also the children’s birth certificates,” police said.

Already, the matter is being investigated by Nairobi County police boss Mr Adamson Bungei who wants any parent who finds their kid among the 16 to record a statement with the police.

“The suspects as well should tell us what they have been doing to the kids and how have they been surviving,” he said.

Missing Child Foundation Kenya sent a message saying the Directorate of Children’s Services is currently undertaking a wellness assessment for the children and police are following due procedure on the matter.

“Information on next steps shall be released to the public officially. The children are in a safe space,” the agency said.

“If your child has been missing, visit Kayole Police Station with your ID, the Birth Certificate of the child and the OB Number you reported with.”

The children who are aged between two years and 16 include boys and girls.

Police said they arrested a Kenyan and Tanzanian national who were hosting the children in the Sunday, February 18, night operation.

The children had arrived from different parts of the country and Tanzania and were headed to an unknown destination, police said.
