17 August 2015, 10:42 Dennis Omido

Nairobi - South Sudan Ambassador to Kenya, Mariano Deng has confirmed that five Kenyans held in his home country are safe.

Speaking on Sunday, Deng said the case of the detainees is still ongoing and being done professionally.

“I can confirm that the five Kenyans are safe and there is nothing to worry about because our system of government ensures that everything is done according to our constitution, so there is no need for alarm,” Deng said.

According to Deng, Kenyan Ambassador to South Sudan has full access and contact to the five detainees as they investigate the matter.

“The Kenyan ambassador to South Sudan visited the detainees and was fully satisfied about their condition. They are well and are being treated with dignity,” Deng said.

The families of the detainees have protested over the manner in which the two governments were handling the issue, but Deng said everything is fine.

“The matter is being handled diplomatically. Kenyan diplomats have visited the detainees and are in contact with their families back home,” Deng said.

The five were arrested on suspicion of alleged involvement in an attempt to defraud the South Sudanese government of KES 1.5 billion and have been held for the last 77 days without trial.
