Government nets more deportees in Easter operations

21 April 2014, 13:02 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The government will deport more aliens this week after operations conducted during the Easter holidays.

It is understood that upto 130 will be deported and are already in holding cells awaiting clearance and movement.

This follows increased operations in Nairobi over the Easter holidays where over 600 people were arrested and detained while awaiting screening.

Many were released after their documentation was declared valid.

" There were around 600 people arrested over the Easter weekend. Many were however released after their documentation was declared valid. Others will be returned to refugee camps with around 100 set to be deported, a source that did not want to be named told News24.

Interior security cabinet secretary Joseph Ole Lenku said last week that the operations will continue to the point of safety.

" The operation will continue to the point where we feel we are safe. It has been a success because you can see how many people have been arrested as illegal residents. We think there are many more and it will continue, he said.

172 people have already been deported so far in the current anti-terror operation, with most being sent back to Somalia.
