The Kenya Ministry of Foreign Affairs has stated that three Kenyans have been evacuated from Afghanistan, while nine remain stranded in the country following the Taliban’s seizure of power.
The 12 citizens all worked for international organisations like the World Bank and the International Rescue Committee.
In a statement made available to the press, the Kenyan government urged the organisations which employed the 12 to evacuate them as a matter of urgency, noting that Kenya has no diplomatic presence in Afghanistan.
However, one of the staff working for the International Development Law Organization has arrived back to Kenya, while two working for Action Contre la Faim, have been evacuated as they are expected back home to Kenya Thursday night.
