About 200 Rwandans who had lived in Tanzania for decades arrived at the Rusumo border over the weekend, after being forcefully kicked out, leaving behind their families and properties in Tanzania's Karagwe region.

This weekend’s arrivals pushed the number of such evictees to 7,035 since last month’s ultimatum by Tanzanian authorities  that gave those they described as ‘illegal immigrants’ two weeks to leave the country.
