The court's decision offers some breathing room to the mostly Somali refugees in the sprawling Dadaab camp, which holds hundreds of thousand of people fleeing unrest in Somalia.
High Court overturned Government's decision to close Daadab Camp and repatriate Somali refugees.
The Dadaab (Dagahaley) refugee camp in Kenya.
The decision shines a light on familiar tensions between legal obligations to protect refugees from war zones and security fears exacerbated by terror attacks by Somalia-based Al Shabaab, an Al Qaeda affiliate.
The threat of closure had been lingering since May 2016, when the government announced it would be sending Somali refugees back to Somalia by the end of November 2016 and disbanding the Department of Refugee Affairs.
Refugees' affairs Mativo directed the State to restore the status quo with regard to administration of refugees' affairs within the country, reinstate and operationalise the Department of Refugees Affairs with immediate effect. "This ruling reaffirms Kenya's constitutional and global legal obligation to protect people who seek safety from harm and persecution", she added.

Refugees living in Dadaab can now sigh with relief after the High Court in Nairobi blocked the government's bid to close the largest refugee camp in the world.
The government argued keeping Dadaab up and running was a security issue. "This decision is yet another blight on refugee protection globally, where again we see total failure in providing safe haven for people in danger".
