Kenya to Evacuate Stranded Citizens in UK by Kenyans247(1): Sun 19, April, 2020 04:55pm
The Kenyan High Commission in London has unveiled plans to evacuate a section of Kenyans stranded in the United Kingdom since the Covid-19 pandemic struck the globe.

In a statement released on Sunday, April 19, the ambassador noted that the high commission was in communication with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to allow for the evacuation.

If it succeeds, some 211 Kenyans will board a plane to land at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA).

"The Kenya High Commission London is in continuous communication with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Headquarters in Nairobi about the fate of some Kenyans who may be stranded in the UK due to flight cancellations occasioned by the Covid-19 pandemic.

"We are working on logistics for a possible evacuation flight from London's Heathrow to Nairobi. Kenya Airways has given 211 as the minimum number of passengers for whom a chartered flight can be arranged," read part of the statement.


The embassy also clarified that the interested Kenyans would, however, have to foot the bill for their airfare.

"Those keen to fly back to Nairobi will be expected to meet the cost for their air ticket and also be subjected to the 14-28 days mandatory quarantine period imposed by the government at their own cost," continued the statement.

This comes just a day after the Kenyan Embassy to China caused a stir after announcing that it was ready to evacuate Kenyans in China as long as they foot their own air ticket.

This is after the Kenyans spoke out in detail, arguing that they had been evicted from their house and were forced to live in the streets. They also lamented at how they had been subjected to forced Coronavirus (Covid-19) tests.

The embassy also demanded that the Kenyans were to file details with the Embassy and must be Coronavirus free.
