 Govt calls for more funding for refugees

Minister of Home Affairs Stephen Kampyongo says there is need for government and cooperating partners to increase funding so that refugees in various camps are adequately supported.

Mr Kampyongo says the country currently has recorded over 40 thousand Congolese refugees in various camps seeking asylum.

He says so far various partners working with government have managed to move five thousand refugees from Kenani transit centre in Nchelenge.

Mr Kampyongo has since thanked cooperating partners for the humanitarian funding to support Zambia in aiding refugees from the Democratic Republic of Congo.
