Deportations

2008-07-24 00:00

It is a sad commentary on the recent acts of xenophobic violence in this country that over half of those accommodated temporarily at the Glenanda refugee camp in Johannesburg have decided to be deported to their countries of origin rather than register for temporary identification documents. Most of these are Zimbabweans and the situation they are returning to is still desperate. Yet they have preferred to go rather than to remain here.
