The government through the Immigration department has cleared the air on the alleged mistreatment of Michael Ernest at JKIA airport.

Through a press release, Immigration Kenya noted that the 27th December incident happened when Michael Ernest, a Nigerian national was heading to Maputo.

He was in the company of his friends before they approached the JKIA immigration departure counter.

Ernest was requested t provide an onward ticket, something that angered him as he cited discrimination.

According Immigration Kenya, it is a requirement for passengers making entry and exit to provide an onward ticket to a third country.

In their defense, the government confirmed that Ernest was not singled out due to his nationality nor was he criminalised.

They finally affirmed their commitment in ensuring that they ensure a smooth entry and exit without prejudice or discrimination.
