E-passport centres launched in six countries to serve diaspora

Published

on

The government has launched e-passport centres in six countries to serve Kenyans in the diaspora.

Foreign Affairs CS Monica Juma  said the service will initially be available in Kenyan embassies in Pretoria, London, Paris, Dubai, Washington and Beijing before being expanded to other countries.

“We mounted the e-passport infrastructure last week. Kenyans are encouraged to get in touch with the missions for modalities of this process,” she said on Friday.

The launch of the centres means that Kenyans living abroad will no longer have to travel back home to apply.

Presidential directive

Run by the Immigration department, portals will be available on each Kenyan mission’s website, directing applicants on the procedure to follow.

Kenyans in diaspora had complained of lack of service despite a directive by President Kenyatta that the passports be issued in their countries of residence.

The foreign ministry said the Immigration department had been setting up the tools required for deployment of personnel.

Initially, embassies had required Kenyans to register their presence on the portals to help provide the numbers and influence decision on setting up centres.

Immigration service

The Immigration department had said it would start with North America, the Middle East and South Africa before moving to other regions.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs manages diplomatic missions abroad but issuance of passports is a responsibility of the Immigration department. This means the department will have to send attaches to the embassies to provide the services.

While in Namibia in March, President Kenyatta directed that Kenyans living abroad be issued with the new generation passports in their countries of residence.

Kenyan MP wanted by US authorities for escaping jail term over tax evasion

Published

on

A Member of Parliament who is serving his first term is a wanted man in the US.

Nation has established that Fafi MP Abdikarim Osman Mohamed is on the radar of US authorities over a crime he was sentenced for in 2015.

US media reported that in 2015, the lawmaker was sentenced to 18 months in jail over tax evasion.

He had been charged with 32 counts of aiding and assisting in the preparation of false tax returns totaling Ksh61 million.

According to reports, the Criminal Investigation Unit of the US Internal Revenue Service, conducted three undercover operations to catch the MP red-handed.

Planted spies posed as clients who wanted to consult Mohamed and have him prepare their Federal Income Tax Returns for 2007.

He prepared the documents but for each of the spies he was consulting for, he falsely reduced the tax due, resulting in fraudulent tax returns.

After he was arrested, Mohammed entered into a plea bargain with the prosecutors and implicated his accomplice, Yahya Sheikh, who was sentenced to 10 years in prison.

Nation also established that due to fear being arrested, the MP turned down an opportunity to travel to the US with the National Assembly Energy Committee in April 2019.
