THE Minister for Foreign Affairs and International Co-operation, Mr Bernard Membe, has raised concern over discrimination against refugees and requested the UNHCR Tanzania office to monitor and find solutions to it.
The minister raised the concern to the United Nations Refugees Agency Representative (Tanzania), Ms Mends-Cole, who visited his office to discuss the strategic direction on refugees' local integration.
Mr Membe explained to Ms Mends-Cole about the government's readiness in seeing sufficient and efficient systems being put in place in order to improve refugees' camp.
Tanzania once hosted over 600,000 refugees mostly from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Rwanda and Burundi. Most of them returned to their countries after restoration of peace and stability.
