Ethiopia’s S. Sudanese Refugees Resist Move

Report
Voice of America

GAMBELLA, ETHIOPIA — The Ethiopian government wants to relocate at least 60,000 refugees, mostly from flooded camps in the country’s southwestern Gambella region, to safer accommodations farther south near the town of Dima.

As the country braces for another influx from South Sudan once the rainy season ends – and that could be any day – the move is getting urgent. But the refugees refuse to go out of fears of ethnic violence.
