Somalia Warns Kenyan Refugee Expulsion Will Lead to ‘Chaos and Anarchy’

Reprint | | Print |

NAIROBI - NAIROBI- Somalia’s Minister of Interior and Federalism Affairs, Mohamud Moalim Yahye , has said the hasty mass deportation of its citizens by Kenya could compromise recent security improvements made by regional governments against the Islamic extremist group, Al-Shabaab.
“The unplanned and uncoordinated deportation of people, especially the youth, will create chaos and anarchy as there are no resources to support and create jobs for them,” Yahye said.

The Somali government has asked that Kenya suspend the current mass deportation of its citizens, which began early April, until the Tripartite agreement for repatriation of Somali refugees is implemented. (END//2014)
