The South Sudan government through the Interior Ministry on Tuesday ordered the deportation of 16 Kenyans, together with 4 British Nationals who were working for a private security company.
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.
The Insight Security Company Ltd was closed by the Sudanese government a few days ago on allegations linked to exploitation of local employees and refusal to pay taxes.
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.
Last year in June, the security guards at Insight made a strike and put down their tools after the firm refused to make their payments in US$.
