Pressure Mounts on Gov’t to Shut Down Dadaab Refugee Camp
Leaders from the North Eastern are the latest lot to call for the closure of the camp saying it has been a breeding ground for terrorists.
Led by Garissa Township MP and Leader of Majority in the National Assembly Aden Duale and Garissa Governor Nathif Jama, the leaders said that the camps were being used to plan attacks against Kenya.
Duale said the camps have become the centres where the training, coordination and the assembly of terror activities happen.
The North Eastern leaders have also pledged to raise 15 million shillings for the victims of the Garissa University college massacre.
The Parliamentary Committee on Administration and National security has in the past also asked the government to close down the camp in a bid to curb insecurity in the country.
In his past address, the committee chairman Asman Kamaa said the United Nations should help Kenya close down the camp and arrange for safe return of all Somali refugees to their country.
The calls come after a terror attack at Garissa University College on Thursday that left 147 students dead and scores injured.
