News : Immigration boss summoned over foreigners’ work permits

The Director of Immigration Jane Waikenda was this afternoon rushed to hospital after she collapsed at the Ethic and Anti Corruption Commission (EACC) compound where she was being taken for grilling over alleged irregular issuance of work permits to foreigners. Waikenda had been picked up from her office at Nyayo House at about 10am and was being taken to Integrity building for questioning when she collapsed. According to EACC officers there had been reliable complaints over the manner in which the permits were being issued before they launched the probe. Since she took over the office last year, there have been major changes on operations at the immigration office. She came into office with a slogan of fast delivery of services. But since then, hundreds of foreigners have been complaining that their permits were being cancelled by immigration officials and issued to others. She was admitted at the Nairobi Hospital where officials say the EACC detectives will wait for her to recuperate before they question her.
