The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is accusing the Kenyan government of breaking international refugee laws after it ordered around 8 000 Somali refugees to return home.
The UNHCR's Fatoumata Lejeune Kaba, points out that, "Our call to the Kenyan government is to stop this and to re-admit those who are in the no-mans land right now. We are in talks with the government to stop this and to find a solution.”
Kaba describes the move as ‘very unfortunate’ because the UNHCR is already discussing the relocation of these refugees, they are way too close to the border and the refugee agency cannot allow them to stay there where they cannot be helped.
