Police in Mwanza yesterday arrested a Kenyan in a guest house attempting to sell an albino, also a Kenyan national.

Addressing a press conference in his office, the Mwanza regional police commander, Mr Simon Siro, said Mr Nathan Mutei, 28, was selling Mr Robinson Mkwama, 20, for Sh400 million.

RPC Siro said the two had arrived in Mwanza through illegal routes on August 12 from Kitale in the Rift Valley where Mr Mkwama was working as a hawker. They had no travel documents when they were arrested, he said.

According to RPC Siro, both Kenyans are long time friends and belong to the Luhya tribe. He said Mr Mkwama had finished Form IV in Kenya.

RPC Siro said Mr Mutei managed to lure Mr Mkwama that he would find him a bus conductor’s job in Mwanza through his contacts, assuring him that the job pays well.
