Minister of Homeland Security Jean Sendeza says the deadline for relocation of refugees and asylum seekers to Dzaleka Camp in Dowa remains 30 November for those living in rural areas and 1 February 2023 for urban dwellers.

Speaking during a press briefing in Lilongwe, Sendeza said the relocation exercise which is costing the government K300 million is progressing well and the treasury is ready to release funds which will be used to mount tents and provide water and sanitation services among others.

“So far, some refugees and asylum seekers have already started going back to Dzaleka Camp. We will ensure that come 30 November those in rural areas have relocated or else the law will take its course.” Sendeza said.

She added that 42 people have applied to return to their countries especially those from Rwanda where peace has been restored.

Sendeza has also cautioned the public saying no one in the community should interfere with the relocation exercise which is the role of her ministry and UNHCR.

Dzaleka Refugees Camp was established to accommodate 12,000 refugees and asylum seekers but now is home to over 50,000 people.

Meanwhile, the government through UNHCR is planning to rehabilitate Luwani Refugees Camp which they say will require $58 million almost K60 billion.
