Gov’t responds to Koffi Olomide’s return to Kenya

President Uhuru Kenyatta’s administration has responded to the possible return of Congolese musician Koffi Olomide into the country.

According to the Interior ministry, Koffi Olomide remains an unwanted guest in Kenya since his deportation two years ago.

Olomide has been invited to perform in Kakamega during the upcoming devolution conference.

In a video recording circulated widely on social media on Friday, Olomide confirmed his return thanking Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya for inviting him to perform at the Devolution Conference ,slated for April 24.

Mimi nimeona pia watu wangu wanapenda mziki, nimeleta Koffi Olomide…” confirmed Governor Oparanya in a public rally.

But his yearn for a grand return since his deportation two years ago could be short lived after the Interior Ministry revealed  Koffi Olomide is yet to be forgiven for his “sins.”

Memories of a July, 2016 incident at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, in which the star was caught on camera assaulting his female dancer.

“The onus is on Koffi Olomide to ask for his status (as a prohibited immigrant) to be lifted. The onus is not us. Koffi, if he won’t regularize his status, would just land on Kenyan soil, and would be taken back to the aeroplane, which brought him, for ejection. Those are international procedures,” Interior Ministry spokesperson Mwenda Nzoka is quoted by Citizen digital
