The regrettable incidents of xenophobic attacks against Africans by other fellow Africans have come and gone. However, the scars of those attacks will remain with us for some time. Most important is the manner in which local, provincial and national governments dealt with and continue to deal with people on the move. Throughout the ages and in all parts of the world people have been on the move seeking safer and better lives. However, in the 21st century having the right to move is becoming increasingly constrained for the majority of poor people. For the very poor, the world is divided by boundaries and categories, which define what is possible for them and their families.
