11 foreign women deported over 'immoral activities'
The Nation (Nairobi), August 28, 1999

Nairobi - Eleven foreign women have been deported for "practising immoral
activities". A senior immigration officer said the deportees were six
Russians and five Chinese.

They were also said to have been in the country illegally. Seven were
deported last night and the other four on Thursday night. Four of the
Thursday night deportees were Russians, the immigration officer said. The
two remaining Russians were deported last night and so were the five Chinese.

The women were arrested from their rented mansion in Muthaiga, Nairobi.
However, the acting Russian ambassador disowned the six, saying they were
not Russians but Ukrainians.

"Kenyan officials do not know the difference between the two
nationalities," he said.

Ukraine and Russia were among the states which formed the Union of Soviet
Socialist Republics before it disintegrated in the late 1980s during
President Mikhail Gorbachev's term.

Confirming the deportation, the Russian official said he was told about it
by the manager of Aeroflot, on which the Ukrainians were put for the flight
home.
