Hollywood A list actress Angelina Jolie is in Kenya. She is a UNHCR Special Envoy and came for the World Refugee Day in Nairobi to meet with adolescent refugee girls.
She visited 20 girls at the Heshima Kenya Safe house who had fled conflict in the DRC, South Sudan, Somalia, Burundi and Rwanda. She said:
‘The role of sexual violence is compounded when it is carried out by someone in uniform who has taken an oath to protect,’ Angelina said.
‘So it is a responsibility of those who wear uniform to take the lead now by correcting from within, setting an example and stepping forward with new commitments.’
