with deportation as per the Immigration Act. 

The judge also ordered that the Ministry of Nationality, Immigration and Gender Affairs released refugees detained at the Francistown Centre for Illegal Immigrant and transport them back to Dukwi refugees’ camp. 

The refugees among them Felix Kakula, who led another court case in 2015, were detained at SADC offices when they  sought audience in relation to the repatriation process. 

Furthermore, the judge said the refugees should not be repatriated until their reasons for fleeing no longer exist.
