The Kenyan embassy in Bahrain has sent out a notice warning Kenyans in the Middle East nation against engaging in illegal activities.
The embassy in a notice dated November 23rd expressed concerns over the high number of Kenyans breaking the law.
“On a regular basis, the Ministry of Interior of the Kingdom of Bahrain furnishes the Embassy with information on Kenyan nationals arrested and incarcerated in Bahrain due to disorderly behavior and breaking the law,” the notice signed by Raphael Musyoka on behalf of the ambassador reads.
“The Embassy is concerned that of late, the cases of unlawful acts by Kenyans have become increasingly rampant further raising concerns with Bahrain authorities due to the high number of them in detentions, deportation centers, and in government shelters.”
