Practice Relating to Rule 129. The Act of Displacement
Kenya’s Geneva Conventions Act (1968) punishes “any person, whatever his nationality, who, whether within or outside Kenya commits, or aids, abets or procures the commission by any other person of any grave breach of any of the [1949 Geneva] Conventions”.
Kenya’s LOAC Manual (1997) provides: “A local cease-fire may be arranged for the removal from the besieged or encircled areas of the wounded and sick, … old persons and maternity cases. Evacuation can also be ordered for military reasons or for the security of the population.”
