State of Refugee Camps

On Tuesday, the Assembly passed a Report of the Goodwill mission by the Regional Affairs and Conflict Resolution Committee to visit Burundi Refugees in Kigoma, Tanzania and in the Eastern Province of Rwanda.

The Members stressed the need to tackle the root causes of the refugee situation in the region rather than addressing the symptoms.

The Regional Affairs and Conflict Resolution Committee led by the Chairperson, Hon Abdullah Mwinyi was dispatched to Kigoma and Eastern Province of Rwanda in late May and early June 2015 to appraise itself with the humanitarian situation on the ground and to assess the amenities available.

During debate, Hon Twaha Issa Taslima noted that the situation in the refugee camps visited were disturbing.

He noted that the Nyarugusu camp in Tanzania was already congested with other refugees from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) also taking refuge there.

Hon Chris Opoka-Okumu urged the host countries to put in place mechanisms under which refugees who have stayed long can be absorbed into such states through naturalization.

Hon Christophe Bazivamo told the House experience in the region has shown that refugee crisis is closely associated with the elections due to violence before, during and after the polls.

Presenting the report, the Chair of Goodwill Mission Hon Mwinyi  said over 100,000 Burundians have fled their country since April this year to Tanzania, Rwanda, DRC and Uganda following violence precipitated by disagreement over the interpretation of the Arusha.
