Denmark & UK to send asylum seekers to Rwanda

Denmark has confirmed that it is in talks with Rwanda about transferring asylum seekers there, following a similar move announced by the UK last week.

Denmark, which has introduced increasingly harsh immigration policies in the last decade, passed a law last year that allows refugees arriving on Danish soil to be moved to asylum centres in a partner country.

The move drew criticism from human rights advocates, the United Nations and the European Commission.

Denmark failed to find a partner country at that time.

Africans have expressed their views on negative impact I am fine thank you transferring refugees to Rwanda.

“Rwanda is turning into a dumping station for uninvited guests in Europe. What same really,” Thandeka Mashiya commented.

“Rwanda is opening up it’s country and borders to more problems to come in future.” Evans Amaru commented

Rwanda is a landlocked country in east-central Africa and is bordered by Uganda, Tanzania, Burundi and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

It is the cleanest and safest country in Africa and 6th safest in the world.

It is one of the smallest countries in Africa, but also the fifth most densely populated country in the world, with a population of around 12.6 million living on 10,169 square miles of land.
