According to the reports from the East African, they were given deportation orders a couple of days ago after their security company known as Insight Security Ltd failed to come to an agreement over wages and salaries of the security guards working for their company.

The Interior Ministry gave 72 hours to the sixteen Kenyan nationals to clear all pending dues which they need to pay the South Sudan government and the security guards as well as their pensions, then exit the country immediately, ‘said the deputy mayor of Juba, Mr Mayardit Thiik Thiik.

Last Wednesday, Juba City Council (JCC) arrested two of the firm’s senior administrators accusing them of exploiting and mistreating their local employees, but they were later released after serious interrogations.
