Court stops sacking of immigration officers

30 October 2013, 16:09

Nairobi - The Industrial Court has stopped the government from sacking 13 out of the 15 immigration officers who were sent home after it was suspected that they handed Kenyan identification documents to illegal immigrants.

The court directed the government to halt their sacking until it hears and determines a petition they filed, Daily Nation reports.

The workers claim that they had not received dismissal letters, moreover, the public service had not communicated to them about the sacking.

They fear that they may be prosecuted following their sacking by the Cabinet Secretary for Interior and Co-ordination of National Government Joseph Ole Lenku.

Lenku said investigations revealed that the officers had endangered national security adding that plans were underway to charge them in accordance of the law.

Security forces in the country have been on the spot, as a probe into how the terrorists that attacked Westgate, had gained entry into the country and been able to commit the heinous crime, considering that some of them were wanted.
