CORRUPTION IN IMMIGRATION
By Mike Ndegwa via Facebook
Despite the passage of time.. â€ª#â€Ž147IsNotJustaNumberâ€¬
Looks like .. We never learn..
There has been a massive exercise for registration of persons
especially in the Nothern Kenya Counties…
There is a town called Masalani in Ijara Constituency, Garissa County.. Young people are lining up for ID registration..
One has to go through.. a number of desks for vetting.. before they can get approved to register as a citizen..
Majority of them are students who are on leave from school to create time for the exercise.. most of them are form four candidates .. and they have been reporting for the exercise everyday since Tuesday but not seeing the light of day..
So if you pay 500 to 1000 you qualify to be a queue jumper
If you pay 5,000 and are a refugee.. your papers are considered for a citizenship. All you need is the chief to say they know you..
If you have a birth certificate..
you are nothing.. and you’ll report for the exercise daily.. and maybe the chief will have mercy on you.. or better yet come back next year… But for the fear that form four students will have their student cards expired.. in a county under curfew.. they are cornered to pay a bribe eventually
In case you forgot.. this town is in the same constituency as â€ª#â€ŽYumbisâ€¬ where there was an attempt to the life our dear police by the terrorists..
For Kes. 5,000 a refugee will get a kenyan citizenship that will enable him travel freely, open bank accounts, operate mpesa and so on. The refugee (now kenyan) may be a member of an outlawed group and can now freely do surveillance for Kenyans to be slaughtered like sheep..
The legitimate kenyan will be arrested because they have an expired student card.. because their citizenship was traded and given to a refugee.
to make it worse an idiot blogger will say a community is hiding terrorists while its the ruling administration that is giving National ID cards to refugees and denying their own
