Tanzanian police said on Thursday they have discovered new tactics used by human traffickers in border areas to sneak in illegal immigrants from abroad.
“They are using motorcycles to let in the country illegal immigrants instead of using lorries which can easily be detected,” Gilles Muroto, the Dodoma regional police commander, told a news conference in the capital Dodoma.
Muroto said police have arrested four illegal immigrants who were being transported using motorcycles in Mpwapwa district in Dodoma region.
“With motorcycles it is easy to avoid entry border posts and other roadblocks,” said the police official, adding that police also arrested two Tanzanians who were driving the aliens.
He said the four arrested illegal immigrants included two Ethiopians and two Somalis. Enditem
