The Nubian community in Kenya has faced numerous struggles with regard to citizenship, nationality, and land rights. The Nubians, who are of Sudanese origin, have lived in Kenya for over a century, but they still face discrimination and exclusion.
One of the biggest struggles the Nubian community faces is the issue of citizenship. Many Nubians were born in Kenya and have lived there their entire lives, but they are still considered foreigners. This means they are denied access to certain rights and privileges that Kenyan citizens are entitled to, such as the right to vote and access to education and healthcare.
Another struggle the Nubian community faces is the issue of nationality. Due to their Sudanese origin, Nubians are often seen as being from a different nation, which leads to discrimination and exclusion from the rest of Kenyan society.
Finally, the Nubian community also faces challenges with regard to land rights. Despite living in Kenya for over a century, Nubians are often evicted from their ancestral lands without proper compensation. This leads to the loss of their homes, livelihoods, and cultural heritage.
In conclusion, the Nubian community in Kenya continues to face numerous struggles with regard to citizenship, nationality, and land rights. It is imperative that these issues are addressed and that the Nubian community is given the recognition and respect they deserve. The Nubian Rights Forum is working tirelessly to fight for justice and equality for the Nubian community in Kenya.
