Migori County Commander, Joseph Nthenge has ordered for the deportation of all Tanzanian nationals who beg for a living in the streets of Migori town.

Speaking to Citizen digital, Nthenge said that the beggars are in Kenya illegally and they must be returned to their own country.

“This should pass as a warning to individuals who have been ferrying beggars to and from Migori County, we are going to arrest and prosecute any persons living with disability from Tanzania who will be found begging in the streets of Migori County” he said.

He further added that the arrest and prosecution of the people living with disability begging in the streets will not spare Kenyans either.

The deportation order comes a day after the Chairperson of Persons with disability at the Migori County Assembly, Esther Onana raised concern over the influx of Tanzanians living with disability begging in the streets of Migori.

Ms. Onana said that they are not going to allow anybody living with disability to beg in the streets of Migori and that Kenyans living with disability should make use of the empowerment program from the government so that they can be self reliant.
