They were op­er­at­ing the ma­chines with­out a work per­mit. Kisumu county com­man­der Ti­tus Yoma said po­lice acted on a tip-off.

The four are be­ing held at the Kisumu po­lice sta­tion and will be charged once a Chi­nese in­ter­preter is found. An­other 25 gam­bling ma­chines were col­lected around the town yes­ter­day dur­ing the crack­down.
