Shona girl Nosizi Dube stuck without citizenship in Kenya





A Shona girl Nosizi Dube is failing to secure a place at the University of Nairobi because she does not a citizenship of any country on earth.

David Ndii a leading Kenyan economist and public intellectual posted on Twitter that, "This is Nosizi Dube. We bumped into each other at @ItsGeorgeKegoro and she was in shock, turns out she'd just been reading me. She is from the stateless Shona (like Makonde). She needs citizenship to go to UON to study economics."

There is a huge tribe of Shona people in Kenya who are stateless and do not have any citizenship.

In 2019, the Government of Kenya through the Chief Administrative Secretary, Patrick Ole Ntutu came bearing good news especially for the Shona community. By 2019, Kenya will re-establish a task force on statelessness and validate the draft national action plan followed by its implementation.

Hey @SafaricomPLC we want to say hello. There is 4000 of us Shona who are stateless. We have to get people with IDs to register our lines . They withdraw money on our behalf. We just pay for the support. I hope your @SafaricomFDN can look into the plight of stateless persons

Hon Ole Ntutu remarked, "By 2020, Government of Kenya pledges recognition as citizens and registration of the Shona community who qualify under the law, as well as by 2020,enactment of the Births and Deaths Registration Act that provides safeguards to prevent statelessness."
