Sudanese refugees in E. Chad named their children Okambo

June 05, 2009 (UNITED NATIONS) – Sudanese refugees in eastern Chad have named their children "Okambo" as a tribute to the International Criminal Court’s chief prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo, actress Mia Farrow said on Friday.

"I’ve met at least 100 babies named Ocampo," Farrow, a U.N. goodwill ambassador, told reporters following a U.N. Security Council meeting on Darfur. "They spell it Okambo. ... So the name has been Africanized."
