“They are tourists in the country legally and some prefer travelling and staying as families,” said Oguna.

According to reports, the foreigners flew into the country a few weeks ago and were on transit to Saudi Arabia, which has put several Asian countries on the COVID-19 red list.

The foreigners were booked into various facilities in Nairobi and Machakos while a section of casual labourers were stranded in the airport having failed to pay the accommodation fee.

Reactions

@Lakwetab: Somehow the govt made a ”secret” deal with the West to bring Afghan asylum seekers to the country and didn’t think of informing its citizens, any way you see the large groups of Asians landing at JKIA and loitering in Nairobi and taking up hotels? Welcome to this weird country

@mmnjug: Good morning @ImmigrationDep, what are the so many Asians who have been coming into Kenya via JKIA aboard a Pakistani airline doing in Kenya

@StephenMutoro: Dear @InteriorKE & @DCI_Kenya: Who are these flocking into the country through JKIA? Are they on work permits? Who is behind them? Could they pose a security threat?
