All refugee camps to be closed by 2015

19 February 2014, 18:56 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi - The Deputy President, William Ruto has assured that government is fully committed to ensure that all refugees in the nation are repatriated for closure of all refugee camps before end of 2014.

Ruto said that negotiations with the refugees' mother countries such as Somalia, Burundi, Rwanda, Sudan among others, are in progress amid the ongoing voluntary refugee repatriation programme.

He stated that so far a large number refugees from Dadaab and Kakuma camps have returned to their nations after realizing that there is political stability and security.

The deputy president added that security has been beefed up both in the refugee camps and along regional borders to ensure that the country is secure from external threats of terrorism.

He said the government has put in place proper and sufficient security apparatus including through screening and monitoring of foreigners coming in the country.

Ruto's assurance comes when some refugees have vowed not to return to their conflict-bound nations for fear of eruption of other bloody clashes. Some refugees have refused to be repatriated claiming that they have no mother county to go other than the camps where they were born, and that they have lived there for long.

Ruto was speaking at a press conference on the state of security and refugees in the nation.
