Dadaab refugee camp to close permanently in 4 Months


The Dadaab refugee camp - the largest in the world, will be no more by the end of August 2019, the government has announced.

Dadaab which is well over three decades old, houses more than 230,000 refugees, but the government is intent on shutting it down.


A document from the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) stated there was a verbal note from the Kenyan government that the Dadaab camp, which is pre dominantly occupied by Somali refugees would be closed down within a six-month period.

The note dated February 19 requested the UNHCR to facilitate the relocation of the refugees.

Furthermore, the UNHCR also expressed willingness to work with the government to ensure voluntary repatriation of the refugees to their respective countries of origin.

Majority of the refugees started camping at Dadaab, in Garissa county from 1991 following the civil war in Somalia.

Closure of the camp has always been on the cards for the Kenyan government, with the most recent push for its closure coming in 2016. At the time, it was strongly alleged the camp was a training grounds for al-Shabaab militia who could easily radicalise youth.

The end of an era. Darood will no longer have a place that rivals Mogadishu/Hargeisa/Djibouti City.

Yes but isn't it shameful to have to trust you enemies that are British dogs, that fondo want you take back your land. All is going according to ajnabi plans thanks to this weak government.

How many are madowweyne though?

Not a lot. I think is 95% Somali.

Mostly the daroods that fled when hawiye chimped out.

"Of the 327,320 Somali refugees in Dadaab in April 2016, UNHCR reports that 75% (247,150) were from a very concentrated area of southern Somalia – the Middle and Lower Jubba regions, and Gedo region (see Map 2). Most of the population of these three regions reside in villages or towns along the Jubba River valley, and are subsistence farmers. The vast majority of subsistence farmers in the Jubba valley are Digil-Mirifle and/or Somali Bantu. Of the remaining refugees, 23,688 are from Bay region, which is almost entirely populated by the Digil-Mirifle clan. This only adds to the percentage of refugees who are Digil-Mirifle and/or Somali Bantu."
