The Idps

By a female, under 16 years old, in Murang'a, Kenya
Map of THE IDPs Internally Displaced People are those who live in camps because of war, migration, natural calamities when the government has grabbed them land. Most of them are t5hose who were affected by the post election violence and Somalis who ran away because of political instability. The government provides them land to stay without being concerned about how they would survive there. Providing them land for them is not a solution. The issue is that how they will eat or get their basic needs yet they do not have any job. Why should should they wait for ther organisations for example NEMA and UNICEF and The Red Cross to come and help help them yet there is a lot of farming in the country suitable for food providence. Even if some do not belong to our government, why should we deny them, the basic needs. The work of the leaders in parliament is to talk about their increase in salaries and involve in corruption and propaganda. Read more.
