16 children from Congo rescued from human traffickers in Kenya.

Sixteen children and two adults from the Democratic Republic of Congo were rescued from alleged traffickers after they were found stranded at the Railways Station bus terminus. The sixteen say they are refugees who had taken a four day trip to seek asylum in Kenya but children's rights NGO The Cradle believe they were about to be trafficked and Mashua voice for the voiceless agree that they are victims of human trafficking. Police are investigating the matter.

Human trafficking is very much on the rise and corruption is fueling the trade.
