The Burundi refugee situation in Tanzania began late April 2015. The months that followed saw significantly high number of persons of concern arrivng in Tanzania, mainly through Kagunga, a tiny border village along Lake Tanganyika, and other entry points in Kigoma region. New arrivals were relocated to Nyarugusu camp, which was already host to 65,000 persons of concern, mainly DR Congolese. The camp quickly ran out of capacity to host DR Congoleses and the new population of Burundians, prompting the opening of a new camp, Nduta, in Kibondo district on 07-Oct-2015.
