Go home, Tanzanian President tells Burundian refugees


Go home, Tanzanian President tells Burundian refugeesRefugees in Tanzania must go home, President John Magufuli said on Friday, a week after officials began mass repatriations of Burundians despite concerns that they may face political persecution. Tanzanian officials have said that all repatriations will be voluntary but Magufuli warned in his speech that refugees in Tanzania, most of whom are Burundians, cannot stay indefinitely and will not be granted citizenship. “Go back to your home … don’t insist on staying in Tanzania as refugees or expect citizenship while Burundi is now stable,” Magufuli said during a rally in Katavi region near a large refugee camp in northwestern Tanzania.
