A group of hundreds of stateless persons from Kwale county Kenya in partnership with local civil society began walking from Kwale to Nairobi to get audience with the president on the status of their registration. The initiative of CONCISE (Coalition for Nationality Citizenship and Statelessness Empowerment) with leadership from Kenya Human Rights Commission empowered the community to take initiative in bringing their issue to the head of state since it was not being addressed by the relevant bodies.
The community got support from human rights defenders from the Coast who walked with them and also received support from the paralegals from partner organisations like in the coast @Lore from Haki Center who also walked with them. They were welcomed in Nairobi by fellow Kenyans and paralegals from Nubian rights forum and the rest of the communities in Nairobi. The walk for justice aims at addressing the statelessness of the community and raising awareness that there are communities that have been in the country since independence but up-to date are not considered as nationals of Kenya. @aishakhagai @Naima_Rajab @Purity_Wadegu @lauragoodwin @zena
