The suspects were apprehended at the main airport in Nairobi, Kenyan capital, on Thursday, while about travelling to Dubai, UAE.

The development comes after UAE issued visa ban on some Kenyans for allegedly using fake “COVID-free certificates”.

One hundred Kenyans were earlier reported to have been found with fake documents and half of them later tested positive for COVID-19.

Due to the pandemic, in most countries, travellers are asked to undergo COVID-19 test, which must be negative, before they are allowed to travel to another country.
