Zimbabwe will repatriate Rwandan nationals staying at Tongogara Refugee Camp in compliance with the Cessation Clause which has certified Rwanda as safe for them to return.

Public Service, Labour and Social Welfare minister Prisca Mupfumira said they will be repatriated by 31 December this year. Said Mupfumira:

It’s not the government of Zimbabwe coming with a position that Rwandan refugees must go back come December 31. It is a position taken last year in October in Geneva affecting Rwandans where ever they may be. The idea of being a refugee is not a permanent issue. I have been a refugee before independence in the UK but when we got independence the UNHCR had to come and repatriate us. Come December 31 the Cessation Clause will come into effect. Our hands are tied because we have to comply with the UN.
