Ethiopia to repatriate thousands of citizens from Kenya


The Ethiopian government will begin the process of repatriating thousands of citizens who remain in refugee communities in Kenya, according to local media.

According to a report by Fana Broadcasting Corporate, 2,281 people will return in the coming weeks, some of whom have been in the Kakuma and Dadaab camps for three to 40 years.

The TV station reports that the Ethiopians will return to their places of origin freely and spontaneously, after expressing their approval in recent consultations.

Meanwhile, Walta TV’s evening news reported a meeting of refugee representatives with officials from the Ethiopian embassy in Nairobi, who declared that preparations for the return of the migrants were complete.

We have already given them travel documents to start the repatriation, in collaboration with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, informed the official Ethiopian mission, according to the same source.

Official reports estimate that around 17,000 Ethiopian citizens are living in the Kakuma and Dadaab refugee camps.
