Illegal Ethiopian Immigrants on Hunger Strike at Makadara Police Station

April 28, 2014

Six illegal Ethiopian immigrants arrested in the ongoing crackdown, have gone on a hunger strike at Makadara police station. Makadara OCPD Nehemiah Langat confirmed the incident saying, “As from Tuesday the inmates refused to eat claiming that the food we offer is not suitable for them. If someone refuses to eat it means he or she is not hungry. But we are hoping they will eat, otherwise they will starve to death,” .
 “I do not think this is a way the group is using to be released. In any case the police are following the rule of law and we will always do,” added Mr Langat.
The 6 who were arrested for not having proper identification documents, have boycotted eating since Tuesday.
