Overview

30/10/2019

As the country hosting one of the largest refugee populations in Africa, Kenya hosts over 479,000 refugees and asylum seekers, including more than 258,000 from Somalia and close to 120,000 from South Sudan, some 42,700 from DRC, and 27,000 from Ethiopia. The majority of refugees are staying in Dadaab camp in the southeast, Kakuma camp in the northwest, and in Nairobi. ?

The Somali refugee population in Kenya has been slowly decreasing through a voluntary repatriation program supported by UNHCR, the government of Kenya, and the government of Somali. Some 84,000 Somali refugees have returned through the programme since 2014.?However, ongoing drought and persisting insecurity have deteriorated the humanitarian situation in Somalia, resulting in movements back to Kenya.
