We have had it for the last three days. The explanations are very different depending on who the interview, but this evening the South African said that the foreigners were stealing their jobs and that the government were not doing anything to help them ;-) The foreigners said that they only want to work in peace, because they have escaped from wars and famine and that they are not stealing any jobs.

Ja, the problem is foreigners come and go as they please across the unpoliced borders, and often buy corrupt SA id documents...complicated!
