Kenya: Leaders Decry Ugandan Soldiers Raid in Kenya

BUSIA leaders on Thursday demanded an answer from the government why Ugandan soldiers are allowed into the country to arrest a Kenyan without authority.

Andrew Shapili Barasa, 44, was on Tuesday nabbed from his Amagoro residence and handcuffed before being driven away in a Uganda registered car.

Family members narrated how four Ugandan soldiers forced their way into their house and forcibly ejected Barasa out of the house. Speaking at an ODM joint campaigns launch at Angurai market in Teso North, the leaders led by former AG Amos Wako said it is illegal for soldiers from another country to cross into Kenya and take away a citizen.
