More than 50 illegal immigrants were arrested yesterday at a college in Eastleigh, Nairobi, in a police operation targeting unregistered institutions.

The foreigners — who are students and staff at Alison Community College — are from Somalia, with one Ugandan.

The college was also closed as it is not registered by the Technical and Vocational Education and Training Authority (TVETA).

TVETA Director-General Kipkirui Langat said the raid, carried out by the Anti-Terrorism Police Unit (ATPU), was prompted by intelligence reports on illegal activities and possible breaches of security at two colleges in Eastleigh.

The officers also raided Atlas College but it was found to be validly registered.

“We’ve closed the college (Alison) until it is registered by law,” Dr Langat said.
