October 19, 2017 Somalia: Not Only a Somali Tragedy
"I think it's really quite tragic that a strategy run from Washington, D.C., and from
the European headquarters in Brussels pays so little attention when over 300 people
are killed, massacred, and another 500 people are struggling for their lives, and
that very little support comes from the United States and the European Union to help
the Somali government clean up this, help the people who have been injured or people
who have lost their parents or their children." - Dr. Abdi Samatar
November 17, 2016 Somalia: Rising Threats to Dadaab Refugees
"The priority of donors and UN agencies should be on improving
conditions in Somalia, not succumbing to political pressure from
Kenya to speed up the pace of returns through monetary inducements.
Kenya faces very real and very serious security challenges. But it
is harmful and wrong to blame the Somali refugee population – people
who themselves fled to Kenya seeking refuge from violence,
persecution, and turmoil at home." - Refugees International
April 8, 2015 Garissa: Not Just Numbers
"I want to go to a place. A piece of ground, also a place online,
where we can find the names of all those who have died for Kenya
since 1963. I want to know their names. I want to walk and walk,
listen and witness, know the lives of those no longer visible to me,
but whose blood mattered." - Binyavanga Wainaina
