November 17, 2016 Somalia: Rising Threats to Dadaab Refugees
"The priority of donors and UN agencies should be on improving
conditions in Somalia, not succumbing to political pressure from
Kenya to speed up the pace of returns through monetary inducements.
Kenya faces very real and very serious security challenges. But it
is harmful and wrong to blame the Somali refugee population – people
who themselves fled to Kenya seeking refuge from violence,
persecution, and turmoil at home." - Refugees International
April 8, 2015 Garissa: Not Just Numbers
"I want to go to a place. A piece of ground, also a place online,
where we can find the names of all those who have died for Kenya
since 1963. I want to know their names. I want to walk and walk,
listen and witness, know the lives of those no longer visible to me,
but whose blood mattered." - Binyavanga Wainaina
May 19, 2014 Kenya: Refugee Crackdown "Counter-productive"
"Harassment and forced repatriation [of Somali refugees in Kenya] is
likely to incite acute hatred against Kenya and entice more youth to
join the Al-Qaeda-linked extremist group. This strategy is counterproductive.
The government's decision to take this route has provoked
anger. Somalis, whether from Kenya or from Somalia, and the Muslim
community have suffered brutal police actions. This suits Al-Shabaab
propaganda and alienates a community that can help fight terrorism,"
Nuur Sheikh, expert on conflict in Horn of Africa, in interview with
Inter Press Service.
