Back home after 42 years with a Twang

Left Kenya in 1975. Returned by Trump. No luggage, only 1 envelope. Was caught in The US driving while Intoxicated.

A 74-year-old Kenyan who has been in the US for 42 years arrived back home with just the clothes on his back and a brown envelope with phone numbers. He was among seven Kenyans who have been deported as the US government continues to tighten its noose on immigrants. A chartered plane filled with 71 deportees who were mostly Somali nationals, accompanied with US security officials, landed at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) in Nairobi Friday morning. JKIA police station OCPD Zipporah Waweru said the 71 were deported following their involvement in various criminal activities such as drunk driving, assault and robbery. ‘No name please’ “These were not ordinary people who were hounded out of the streets and then deported. They were involved in criminal acts and some had been in detention in the US correctional facilities,” she said. The seven Kenyans are Kihanya Charles, Bota Patrick, Githua Paul, Mose Eliud, Nyachae Bosibori Jackline, Ongori Vincent and Seet Sila. Two of them, the Saturday Standard established had been caught trying to cross to Canada using an illegal border point. The 74-year-old, who speaks with a deep nasal drawl – a twang – moved to the US in 1975. He asked us not to publish his name as he is planning to return. He had been arrested for drunk driving. “The judge fined me $1,240 which I paid but immediately I got out of the courtroom, I was re-arrested and sent to a detention camp,” he said. He added that he was in the camp for two weeks before being put on a plane back home. There are at least 500,000 Kenyans living in the US and they send home at least $82 million a year, which is currently Kenya’s third largest source of forex exchange. The seven, who recorded statements at the DCI office before being released will however not be charged in Kenya. “They (the deportees) didn’t commit any offence here, and we cannot start any criminal proceedings against them,” Waweru said. While they were allowed to walk free after recording statements, their Somali counterparts remained in handcuffs. This is the second batch of immigrants to be deported from the US in five months.

Then they go ahead and publish his picture. Haina haja kufurahia.


My guess is nobody can recognize him anyway.

How does someone deported from the US return? Short of going to Mexico and crossing the border illegally?


Why don’t they deport these ones directly to Zoomalia?


Are you sure this is not one of those “fake news” as Trump himself calls it?

42 years in the US and being deported now? In 1986, stand corrected, history has it that then President Reagan gave blanket ammensity to all illegals. One of the major bones of contention as to the debate to-date as to how to handle the illegal immigrant crisis.


werent those the immigrants from Cuba only?

42 years and he doesn’t know to take a cab? They should’ve shot the maaafaka


Does he even have fare for a cab? All he has is a bahasha.

That amnesty was offered to those with no criminal history. I believe a third DUI you have no chance. 2 strikes law.


IHe shouldnt have been arrested in the first instance is what I mean

Yes. Something behind the whole story.

A 3rd DUI…so it means he had papers ama? if yes then why was he deported?

I fail to understand how utakaa aje huko for 42 yrs Bila mtoto born of an American citizen for some of you who know what i mean. Problem ni some of these guys don’t have access to right legal counsel that’s why. I know someone who had 3 dui and he ended up with g-card. Huyu alilalia maskio

42 years is alot of time to get your papers in order marry,serve etc whats wrong with the dude sahi ndo atajua hata malenge ni mboga


These are very sad cases. Most likely:

  1. Hooked to drugs and or alcohol
  2. Was once doing fine the got cocked by wifey who took home and got guy slapped with a huge alimony and child support bill. The guy then decides he wont slave for a biatch so he avoids takin up jobs to keep the pay at a minimum that cant be sliced. Frustration then drugs and the spiral down continues.

I once met a guy from a prominent family, rich that had huge tracts of land upon which a famous neighborhood is named. He arrived in US in 1968 as he told me. He lived the life had a home and beautiful wife and cute daughters
. Then the domes started and soon he had no family no home and alimony to pay. End of story is from where I began, I met the guy at a train station selling curios and begging,
