Refugees no more, Burundians pressed return

Report
IRIN

KASULU, 31 August 2012 (IRIN) - After years of resisting voluntary repatriation efforts, tens of thousands of Burundians in Tanzania now face a deadline to leave by the end of 2012, following a decision to put a formal end to their refugee status.

Some 38,000 Burundians live in the Mtabila refugee camp in the Kigoma Region. It is the last remaining of a half-dozen such sites for Burundians who have fled civil conflicts since the early 1970s. At the height of the latest such conflict, in 2002, there were over half a million Burundian refugees in Tanzania.
