The court has barred the government from relocating somali children separated from their parents during terror swoops.
The temporary order was issued by High Court judge Isaac Lenaola following an application by Refugees’ Consortium of Kenya on behalf of the Somali children.
Lenaola’s order means the government cannot remove the children from Nairobi or interfere with their lives until their case is heard and determined.
The children, the consortium says, are currently staying with relatives and friends who took them in following their parents’ deportation.
The children’s parents were rounded up and some deported during the April 5 internal security operation, Usalama Watch.
The organisation sued Attorney General Githu Muigai, Interior Secretary Joseph ole Lenku and the commissioner for refugees affairs.
The case will be heard on September 12.
