Fifty-two families  of 178 people from Rumonge communes who fled to Tanzania in 2015 have already repatriated, the Rumonge communal administration said. On their return to the country, they were welcomed in Mabanda commune, at the transit camp of Gitara, a place of embarkation to Rumonge commune.

These returnees benefited from a return package and transportation costs from the Office of the High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) to enable them to reach their homes. In the late evening of Wednesday, May 23, everyone had already evacuated the premises of the capital of the commune Rumonge to the original hills.
