XINHUA NEWS SERVICE REPORTS FROM THE AFRICAN CONTINENT

 

Diaspora protest that they are unable to travel on Kenya passports

from Kul Bhushan in NEW DELHI India -- Recently Kenya announced new e-passports to be issued to all Kenyans after obtaining a new identity card.

This is possible with a personal visit to Kenya.

Kenyans living abroad have now protested that they are unable to travel to Kenya for this purpose.

So Kenya government announced special passport processing officers to be sent to SIX cities:

Paris, Berlin, Washington, Jo’burg, Dubai, and London.

Why not New Delhi?

India has a large number of Kenyan African students studying all over this sub-continent who are unable to travel to Kenya; plus some Kenyan African expatriates who live in India.

Most hit are the Kenyan Indian retirees who are settled in India and cannot travel due to medical and financial constraints.

Thus, can an appeal be made through an article in Coastweek to the government to consider sending an immigration officer to the Kenya High Commission in New Delhi to enable all these Kenyans to obtain their e-passports?

Is there another method of reaching out to Kenyan authorities on this matter?.
