United Nations (UN) humanitarian agency has revealed that more than 522 000 refugees who have fled their homes in South Sudan scatter in four Eastern Africa countries
There is an increase of over 20 000 people into neighboring countries in the last two months, a 4 percent up, the UN Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) Eastern Africa said in its latest report.
According to OCHA, the number of refugees uprooted are 200 000 in Ethiopia, 50 000 in Kenya, 150 000 in Uganda, and 150 000 in Sudan.
The UN agency warned that the deteriorating food insecurity situation in South Sudan is expected to further increase the number of refugees entering Kenya, Ethiopia, Sudan and Uganda.
“Renewed fighting and inter-communal violence in Upper Nile, Lakes and Unity States has resulted into increased displacement across the region and influx into Malakal and Bentiu Protection of Civilians (PoC) sites,” it said.
The South Sudanese refugee population in Kenya’s Kakuma camp has more than doubled from 45 239 to 90 592 since the fighting erupted, the agency said.
“The main challenge is unavailability of land to accommodate new arrivals and inadequate supply of drinking water,” it said, adding that progress has been made after extensive consultations with the county government and the host community for new land.
