A plane carrying 90 Somalis and two Kenyans landed at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport on Wednesday, January 25, after deportation from the United States.
Immigration and airport officials confirmed the arrival of the group but no details were immediately available on reasons for their deportation.
Government Spokesman Eric Kiraithe confirmed the deportations but did not immediately provide further details on whether they are linked to the crackdown pledged on illegal immigrants by US President Donald Trump.
“It is true we have two Kenyans and 9o Somalis who were deported from the US,” Kiraite told Capital FM News over the phone.
On arrival in Nairobi, the Somalis were flown to their country.
