Red flag raised over influx of foreigners with IDs in Migori

06 June 2014, 15:59

Migori - The Government has been challenged to investigate how some foreigners in Migori County have allegedly acquired Kenyan national identification cards and settled in the area.

Local leaders claimed that some Tanzania nationals and suspicious individuals of Somali origin were holding Kenya’s identification documents and moving freely in the area.

The leaders expressed fears that in the advent of the heightened security concerns as a result of the terrorist’s attacks in parts of the country, the foreigners posed a risk to the country.

The leaders demanded that the Government probes how the foreigners got the IDs and who planned for their staying in the area.

They suspected that some of these illegal immigrants had an ancestral link with the local members of Kenyan communities living in the county.

The leaders, led by Peter Oloo, accused some local provincial administrators of abetting the crime and particularly cited those from Kuria region.

“Some of the administrators from Kuria region have the ancestral link with the aliens from Tanzania, while those of Somali origins get assisted by a cartel within the Kenyan Somali Community living here,” said Oloo.

The leaders, who spoke in Awendo town, accused some of the aliens of insecurity in the area.

Migori County commissioner, Anne Ngetich is now asking area residents to cooperate with security agencies in the area to weed out bad elements who posed a security threat to them.

She told the residents to embrace the Nyumba Kumi initiative to help them identify non-Kenyans and criminals living among them.
