KENYA: Kenya to deport 225 illegal immigrants

April 16, 2014 (Daily Nation) –Kenya will deport 225 illegal immigrants from various countries arrested during the ongoing security crackdown, police have said.
412 others are set to be transferred to designated refugee camps while 313 have so far been arraigned in court, an update on the operation dubbed Usalama Watch indicated Wednesday.

“The government policy is that all illegal aliens must be deported to their countries of origin…the process of deporting 225 people is ongoing,” a statement from the police Inspector General David Kimaiyo said.

Those being deported include 214 people to Somalia, six to Ethiopia and two to Uganda. A Tanzanian, a Cameroonian and a South Sudanese will also be deported.

So far, 1,136 suspects from 14 different nationalities had been screened at the Kasarani Stadium, which has been gazetted as a temporary holding centre by the government.

According to the police, 186 people were released after the screening carried out by police, National registration Bureau, Immigration, Department of Refugee Affairs, and Anti-Terrorism Police Unit among others.

The police insisted that all registered refugees must be within the two gazetted camps, Kakuma and Dadaab in northern Kenya, warning that found to have left would be returned.
