Time is Up for Undocumented Foreigners in Kenya

Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiangi has said he will be proposing an amendment to parliament to ensure that foreigners found in the country illegally, pay for their tickets back home. A warning will also be given to immigration officials issuing illegal work permits. He said the Immigration department will embark on creating a digital register of legal foreign workers, and provide them with electronic identification cards.
