Kenya's newly appointed Director of Immigration Jane Waikenda took office Wednesday (June 26th) and instructed her division to step up screening of foreigners entering the country, Kenya's Daily Nation reported.
In her first meeting with department heads in the Ministry of
Interior and Co-ordination of National Government, Waikenda warned that

within 100 days. "You will have to embrace change because my office
will not tolerate people who do not add value to the department," she
