Botswana urged to stop granting asylum to Zimbabweans & Namibians

Speaking during a workshop to mark 50 years of refugee protection in Botswana, United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR)  regional representative, Veronica Irima Modey-Ebi urged the country not to grant asylum to Zimbabweans and Namibians at the Dukwi Refugee Camp as the situation in both countries has improved.

Almost 720 Zimbabweans and a large number of Namibians continue to stay at the Dukwi Refugee Camp, even though there is no internal conflict, war or displacement in their countries of origin. Botswana’s Minister of Defence and Security, Shaw Kgathi urged refugees, including those from fellow SADC countries, to return home, arguing the situation had normalized.
