Kenya Inter-Cluster Team Situation Report No. 15, 07 – 10 Mar 2008: Kenya Post-Election Emergency Response – Cluster: Food Assistance

Kenya Inter-Cluster Team Situation Report No. 15 – Mar 07 – 10
Kenya Post-Election Emergency Response: Food Assistance Sector

Situation Overview

Kenya Red Cross, Government of Kenya (Office of the President / Special Programme) and WFP are coordinating the food pipeline and food assistance activities in Kenya building on the existing food assistance coordination mechanisms in Kenya.

The general security situation has been calm with highways and roads being accessible and open. No incidents related to post-election violence were reported during the reporting period. Security situation appears to be returning to normal. Police patrolling and check posts on the highways have improved. The order for military escort is no more in force since mid-last week and no incidence/event has been reported on this account since withdrawal of military escort. The night bus service, which was stopped since the post-election violence, is now expected to commence under military escort.

The authorities are encouraging IDPs in camps to return home. While there are few reports of return, majority of IDPs prefer to stay with host families closer to their farmlands. The IDPs feel secure living within their communities, which also gives them an opportunity to prepare their farms during the rainy season. It has been reported that families are already preparing their farmlands for the rainy season.

Determining the actual figure of IDPs in the camps/sites and those within the communities continues to be a challenge. The latest IDP number from KRC is 234,725 IDPs in 247 camps (as of 3 March). KRC estimates 150,000 IDPs as a medium term caseload, these are IDPs who will not be able to easily go home for different reasons.
