The crackdown on illegal immigrants has seen various countries’ nationals deported.
Early last month, Police arrested 31 aliens in various operations as the purge on illegal immigrants gathered pace. In the swoop, 25 Sudanese, two Ugandans, two Egyptians and two Nigerians were seized in Uasin Gishu County.
Eldoret East OCPD Richard Omanga said the foreigners were arrested while operating businesses without proper permits.
Another group of 11 aliens had been arrested in the town three days before. “The operation will continue until all illegal immigrants are arrested,” said Omanga while confirming the incident last month.
In August, 19 Nigerians were arrested and later deported for engaging in in electronic fraud. The suspects were arrested in Umoja, Kasarani and Roysambu Estates within Nairobi for engaging in electronic fraud targeting Kenyans. Director of Criminal Investigations George Kinoti said the suspects target Kenyans especially through the social media before they embark on lying to them.
Do you think increasing the number of patrol vehicles will help impound more illegal immigrants?
