Share this:
The High Court in Nairobi has put a stop to government plans to close down the Dadaab refugee camp. In his ruling, justice John Mativo noted that the cabinet secretary for interior and his principal secretary acted in abuse and in excess of their powers by ordering both the closure of the camp and the disbandment of the department of refugees. The government had announced that it would resume the repatriation of refugees in may this year.
