Government cracks whip on refugees following terror attacks

25 March 2014, 20:22 William Korir

Nairobi - The government has ordered all refugees to relocate to two specific camps as the reaction to increasing terror attacks in the country intensifies.

Interior security cabinet secetary Joseph Ole Lenku Tuesday evening ordered all refugess relocated to eiher the Daadab or Kakuma camps or risk arrest.

The move is aimed at stopping the increased number of terror attacks in the country following increased movement of terrorists in recent months.

" All refugees are immediately asked to reside at eigher the Kakuma or Daadab camps with immediate effect, a statement from Ole Lenku read in part.

Ole lenku said that there would be forced arrest of refugees who will not have complied with the order.

" Action will be taken on those found to be flouting the new directive, it further added.

There have been several attempted terror attacks in Mombasa with one finally coming to fruition over the weekend leaving six people dead, while the country has been shocked by the revelation of used ammunition cases in a busy Nairobi mall Monday.

The government is reacting to claims that the increased radical activities are being pushed forward by refugees thus the move.

Ole Lenku did also clarify that the government is not marginalising refugees with the move.

" The directive is vital at the moment and will be re-considered in due course once found necessary.

Kenya has already been warned of impending terror attacks and with president Uhuru Kenyatta urging action on terrorism, the government is keen to take the fight to the radicalists.
