Kenyans in Afghanistan: It is your employer’s duty, not ours, to evacuate you, Kenyan Government announced
The government has stated that Kenyans working in Afghanistan would be evacuated by their individual companies.
In response to questions about the safety of Kenyans working in the unstable nation, Principal Secretary of State Macharia Kamau reaffirmed that no Kenyan officially served as diplomats or any other government job.
“Kenya does not have a diplomatic presence or accreditation in Afghanistan,” Amb Kamau stated, adding that the main security responsibility of Kenyans is with their deployed agencies.
But he said that Kenya knew the people who were employed by foreign organisations in a difficult area and noted that they started to evacuate their workers.
Some Kenyans were in Afghanistan as private contractors or legal consultants for organisations such as the Organization of International Development Law (IDLO).
In this respect, Mr Kamau said that Nairobi has contacted the headquarters of the organisation in Rome about preparations for evacuation.
