Interior cabinet Secretary Joseph Nkaissery is expected to sign a deportation order against South Sudan activist Dong Samuel Luak who fled the war torn country three years ago.
Luak was arrested on Monday and detained by Kenya Airport Police Unit (Kapu) sparking an outburst of reaction from human right lobby groups demanding for his release.
Dong Samuel Luak, a lawyer by profession fled to Kenya in August 2013 after allegedly facing death threats.
He is said to be a close allay Pagan Amum, former Secretary General of South Sudan ruling party who was accused of involvement into acts of treason.
Luak was brutally attacked at his home in Nairobi in October 2015. In November last year, James Gatdet Dak, the main spokesman for exiled opposition leader Riek Machar, was deported from Kenya.
The world’s youngest nation, South Sudan descended into war in December 2013, two years after achieving independence, leaving tens of thousands dead and more than 3.1 million people displaced.
