Somalia deports two Kenyans for working in the country illegally

By NJ Corespondent:

Two Kenyans were deported from Somalia on Wednesday for illegal stay in the country as the horn of Africa nation continues to shrug off the failed state tag.

The two identified as Edgar Mudachi and William Kamau and were among 15 arrested at the Aden Abdulle airport following crackdown on foreigners by immigration officials.

The crackdown follows recent announcement by the federal government requiring all foreigners working in the country register with the immigration department and obtain work permits or risk deportation.

Kenyans in Somalia ply their trade in the construction and hospitality sectors while many others work with humanitarian organizations as international staff and consultants.
