Ahmad was left the no man's land between the two countries. Luckily for him he was picked up by the UNHCR.
He was brought into Tanzania where he has remained since then. His first attempt to gain refugee status was denied in Tanzania.
Ahmad approached Asylum Access for help to return to Malawi ,which actually messed things up and made everything more complicated for authorities.
The UNHCR helped support Ahmad as he waited a second decision to be recognized as refugee. Asylum access Tanzania was in favor of continued assistance for Ahmad. Ahmad had refugee status and awaited resettlement and being reunited with his family.
