He told the BBC Dira radio programme that his comments were only targeting illegal traders.

“No country would allow people who do not have permits to do illegal business,” he said.

His comments angered some Tanzanian lawmakers who called on Kenyans to be kicked out of their country.

Tanzania’s government also summoned Kenya’s high commissioner to explain the comments.

Mr Njagua told the BBC that he “loves” Tanzania and has family in the country.
