The government of Kenya through the Ministry of Interior and Coordination of National Government led by Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang'i has issued two weeks ultimatum to the United Nations High Commissioner of Refugees (UNHCR) to close two of the world's largest refugee camps located in Kenya.
This comes moments after a bomb from suspected Alshabab militias exploded in Mandera County killing 3 Kenyans. This was after a bus they were travelling in blasted due to the bomb effects. Sources have it that the bomb was mainly targeting Government officers who were moving KCPE papers.
This seems to be the event that has triggered Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang'i to close down this refugee camps indefinitely due to the rise of terror threats in North Eastern Kenya whereby in many cases, plans of terror attacks have erupted from this camps
