News from Kakuma Refugee Camp

Dear all

In the unlikely event that you’re even slightly interested in my forthcoming journey to Kenya I’ve provided a link to the only refugee news outlet in Africa, Kanere, which is based in Kakuma refugee camp.  Go to and have a read of their stuff, it makes for fascinating and sometimes disturbing reading.

On a related topic I heard from my friend Moulid Hajale who lived in Dadaab Refugee Camp which is located near to the Kenya/Somalia border.  Earlier today he narrowly escaped injury when a landmine exploded nearby.  Thankfully he is safe but there were several injuries and possible a couple of fatalities. What’s the betting it won’t make the news? If it doesn’t it only goes to prove just how suitable my book title is and that the saying ‘out of sight, out of mind’ is a worthy cliche.
