Kenya to UNHCR, take your paperwork and get out along with the Somalis

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 20, 2012

Update December 29th:  More on those evil Kenyans trying to protect themselves from the Somali hoards, here.

Well, what do you know, some governments in this world are willing to say—you cause crimes, you are terrorists in our country then you all leave!  (Assuming of course that this is all true considering the source!)

***Update***  I guess it is true because here is Amnesty International screaming its head off because Kenya wants to save itself from being completely overrun.

From Somalia Online:

All Somali refugees in Kenya have been ordered to leave urban areas and return to camps following a spate of grenade attacks.

Aid will no longer be delivered to those who remain in urban areas, said the head of Kenya’s refugee agency.

The attacks have mostly been carried out in areas with a large ethnic Somali population, such as the north-east and the Eastleigh district of Nairobi.

They are believed to have been carried out by the al-Shabab militant group.

Al-Shabab, which is part of al-Qaeda, has not commented on the claims.

But it has warned that it would take revenge on Kenya, after it sent its troops into Somalia last year to help the UN-backed government seize territory back from al-Shabab.

All Somali refugees have been ordered to report to the north-eastern Dadaab camps – the world’s biggest – which already house some 500,000 people.

More than 30,000 Somali refugees live in Nairobi, the AFP news agency quotes the UN as saying.

I bet the UNHCR (UN High Commissioner for Refugees) is having fits over this—take your registration centers with you!

The government of Kenya has decided to stop reception, registration and close down all registration centres in the urban areas with immediate effect,” read a statement from Badu Katelo, Kenya’s acting commissioner for refugee affairs.

“UNHCR and other partners serving refugees are asked to stop providing direct services to asylum seekers and refugees in the urban areas and transfer the same services to the refugee camps.”

Unlike the US, some countries are trying to save themselves through deportation.
