      @thando: they come here because this place is westernised so there is opportunity for a better living thanks to a thriving economy unlike their tribal lands. Unfortunately they don't leave their tribal behaviours behind with them, and that's why we have this problem. So agreed, they should just stay away from civilized society if they can't behave in a civilized manner
