According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations, the two pleaded guilty to drug trafficking charges, corruption to defeat extradition and conspiracy to use guns to facilitate their drug trafficking business.

The two alongside Pakistani national Gulam Hussein and Indian national Vijaygiri Goswami were extradited to the US in January 2017 after being arrested in Mombasa.
