Makonde Community Assessment: A study into the nationality status of Makonde community in Kenya

  An estimated 20,000 persons are considered to be stateless or of undetermined nationality in Kenya[1], despite the lack of detailed statistics on affected populations. The Makonde who originate from Northern Mozambique are often counted among affected populations alongside other groups, such as Nubians, Galjeel, Pemba, Waata, Coastal Arabs and Somali Kenyans. A common feature among these populations is that they have either not been able to access Kenyan documentation or had difficulty in proving their Kenyan nationality in vetting processes that may take place prior to issuance of Kenyan national identity cards.
