On Friday, sixty-two Ethiopian men were arrested in Ruiru, Kiambu County as police intensified the terror crackdown across the country.

The aliens were found in a residential area where police believe they were hiding.

Ruiru OCPD Isaac Thuranira confirmed the incident where he urged the area residents to cooperate with police as they enhance their security.

A caretaker and two other men who were delivering food to the suspects were also arrested. They are due to appear in court on Tuesday to face charges of being illegally in Kenya.

The Government has maintained that the operation dubbed Operation Usalama Watch will continue despite calls from human right groups and politicians to stop it claiming that it was only targeting a particular group of people.

On Thursday, President Uhuru Kenyatta warned politicians to desist from disrupting police work including the ongoing terror crackdown.

He said the crackdown was only targeting criminals and not a community or a specific religious group.

The President who was presiding over the passing-out parade of more than 3,000 Administration Police recruits in Embakasi said the government will act firmly against criminals who have claimed many lives of innocent Kenyans.

More than one hundred aliens have since been deported to their countries since the operation started.

Interior Cabinet Secretary Joseph Ole Lenku has since defended the police of any wrong doing saying the operation was being carried out in a professional manner.
