Stringent security measures have been introduced at Kakuma refugee camp in Turkana County to deter Al-Shabaab militants from hiding there.

Refugees are being thoroughly vetted before being admitted and restricted from going to other parts of the county.

“We no longer accept refugees without referral letters from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees,” said Turkana West police boss Jonathan Ngala.

He also said refugees would not be allowed to leave the camp without a compelling reason like medical treatment.
