The government is expected to table a raft of amendments to the Constitution on the issue of citizenship – which civil society and human rights observers have criticised. They warn the amendments will worsen the impact of statelessness in the country.

BFM talks to Dr Farah Nini Dusuki, the children’s commissioner at Suhakam, about the implications of these proposals for vulnerable groups such as foundlings and abandoned children.
