Kenyans in the diaspora sent home ksh280 billion in 2019 

Published

By JUDITH GICOBI

According to the Central Bank of Kenya (CBK) new annual record in 2019, Kenyans living and working abroad sent home approximately $2.7 billion (KSh280 billion).

The amount shows a 3.7 percent growth compared to the previous year, whose remittances roughly $2.6 billion (KSh272.3 billion). The lowest remittance was in 2015.

A weekly report bulleting from CBK that was released on Friday shows money sent by Kenyans in the diaspora increase to $250.3 million (KSh25.2 billion) in December 2019. An increase from $218.8 million (KSh22 billion) in November. 

Kenyans in North America accounted for the most substantial part of the remittance in December at 50 percent. Following closely was Europe at 20 percent and 30 percent from the rest of the world.

However, the 2019 total remittances did not meet the World bank’s target of Sh285.5 billion. The target amount would have achieved a five percent growth. “The rate of growth of remittance inflows will rise by just 5 percent compared to a 39 percent growth between 2017 and 2018,’’ World Bank said in December.

World Bank sees the reduced growth in diaspora remittances is due to the increasing economic concerns in the US and the United Kingdom, where a recession may be setting in despite strong employment data.

”With the world slipping into a recession, it is feared that remittance inflows may suffer as companies’ layoff staff in the developed world even as employers and employees adopt austerity measures,” World Bank’s report said.

Published

By JUDITH GICOBI

Kenyan-Canadian lawyer, Miguna Miguna, is urging Kenyans in the United Kingdom to partake in a protest against President Kenyatta as he plans to visit the country this week.

Miguna, through his twitter page on Saturday, addressed his supporters, asking them to stage a protest where President Kenyatta will be staying during his visit to the UK. The protest is to demand that the president obeys court rules requiring the government to allow him to enter the country. 

“Red Alert! Notice to all Patriots in London! Uhuru Kenyatta will be in London, UK, from January 20, 2020,” wrote Miguna.

He added: “He will be shuttling between the Town House located at 66 Lowndes Square, Kensington, and 10 Downing Street. Find him. Show him that No One is Above the Law!” 

The president is set to attend the UK-Africa Investment Summit in London from Monday, January 20th, former Foreign Affairs CS Monica Juma confirmed.

“Arrived in London, ahead of H.E. President Uhuru Kenyatta who, at the invitation of Prime Minister Boris Johnson, will join other leaders for the Africa-UK investment summit on 20th January 2020,” Dr. Juma wrote on Twitter on Saturday.

Miguna is currently stuck in Germany after his return to Kenya on January 7 th was rendered impossible by the Kenyan Government that issued a red alert warning airlines not to fly Miguna to Kenya or any African nation.

VIDEO: New laws which could have US Green Card holders deported take effect as thousands rush to acquire Citizenship

Published

on

If you are a Green Card holder in the US and you  think you can do whatever you like without running into  the risk of deportation, then think again. There are some new laws going into effect that could get permanent residents deported.

Under the newa Trump rules, a simple mistake is no longer an excuse and simply not knowing what the new rules are could get someone holding a green card kicked out of the United States for good. The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has instituted some new rules that will take effect in 2020.

Some of the new green card rules for 2020 which could get you in trouble if not obeyed are:
  •  Failing to admit you’re an immigrant on your tax returns or failing to report some of your income could get you deported
  • Men between the ages of 18 and 25 who hold a green card must register with the U.S. Selective Service; failure to do so could lead to deportation
  • An extended overseas vacation could cost someone their green card – it could be considered “abandonment” of the green card. WATCH:

 

Young men between the ages of 18 and 25 who hold a green card and do not register with the Selective Service could also be deported.  Even a vacation overseas could cost someone their green card.

Some are no longer willing to take the chance by simply holding a green card, which must be renewed every ten years, and instead they’re becoming U.S. citizens to avoid deportation.
She says calling these infractions a mistake is no longer an option.
