Ikolomani MP Bonny Khalwale wants the Government to extradite three people he considers to be foreign nationals harassing Kenyans.

But the three are facing court proceedings related to their stay, investment, electoral politics, and troubled relations with local women. Therefore, Immigration Minister Otieno Kajwang’ will be careful not to breach the principle of sub judice when he comes to Parliament on Wednesday next week to explain the presence in Kenya of Muhammud Sirat, a contestant for Wajir South parliamentary seat in 2007 General Election, Quincy Timberlake, a musician in police custody locked in a love affair with former news anchor Esther Arunga, and Antony Chinedu, a Nigerian businessmen in a child custody and business dispute with a Kenyan woman, Joyce Akinyi. "These people have caused immense suffering to Kenyan families," Dr Khalwale said.

He now wants the minister to explain "what they are doing in Kenya".

Timberlake, who Esther claimed to have married while in jail last week, the MP alleged, is a Congolese musician from the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Khalwale said "Mr Timberlake has caused immense suffering to the family of Dr Arunga."

Timberlake was charged last month together with founder of the Finger of God Church Hellon Onyango and others for belonging to an illegal movement. Timberlake remains in police custody on immigration charges for staying in Kenyan illegally.
