(+) REFUGEES RE­TURN FROM DADAAB ‘FORCE­FUL’

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics General -

On Oc­to­ber 10, a re­port said the repa­tri­a­tion of So­mali refugees from Dadaab is no longer vol­un­tary, dig­ni­fied and safe, and has failed to meet in­ter­na­tional stan­dards. The re­port by the Oslo-based Nor­we­gian Refugee Coun­cil said refugees feel trapped fol­low­ing the Kenyan gov­ern­ment’s de­ci­sion to close the camps by the end of Novem­ber. The eight-page doc­u­ment is ti­tled ‘Dadaab’s bro­ken prom­ise, A call to re­in­state vol­un­tary, safe and dig­ni­fied re­turns for the Dadaab refugee com­mu­nity’.
