The site AllAfrica.com reports that the government of Kenya intends to close refugee camps within its borders. The largest camps are Kakuma, where I traveled in January this year, and Dadaab, and they house nearly 600,000 people, according to the article “Kenya to Close All Refugee Camps.” Although 7,843 South Sudanese live in the camp, 80% of inhabitants are Somali. There is fear in Kenya that the camps expose their country to terrorists attacks from groups such as Al Shabaab.
