    THE Immigration Department in Iringa Region has deported 51 illegal aliens of Somalia origin to their country after finalizing all the procedures of documentation, it has been disclosed.

    The 51 illegal migrants were part of the total 76 aliens who were arrested on March 2, this year near Tanangozi Village in Iringa District for sneaking into the country without legal documents.

    They were travelling in a lorry going to South Africa through Zambia from Kenya across the Namanga border post in Arusha Region looking for greener pastures.

    Speaking during a press briefing today, the Iringa Regional Immigration Officer (RIO), Mr Ally Suleiman Nassoro said in March this year, police in collaboration with the immigration department intercepted 76 illegal immigrants from Ethiopia and Somalia at Tanangozi Village.

    Mr Ali said the Somalis were expatriated including six children after they had paid a fine of more than 1.3m/- to the government, where each individual paid at least 24,600/-.

    ''The 51 Somalis were supposed to have paid a fine of 30,000/- each but because they have stayed in prison, their fine had been reduced to 24,600/- though it excluded the six children who also belong to the group,'' he explained.

    He noted that the Somalis will be transported up to Tanga Region where government officials from their country will pick them up.

    He however said that the other 19 aliens of Ethiopian origin were still languishing in prison because they are yet to complete the procedures.
