Mike Golby, a South African blogger, struggles to understand the situation in Cape Town, where, as cosmopolitan as it seems, refugees find it difficult if not entirely impossible to integrate fully. For the Somali refugees, as he particularly notes, it’s hell on earth. “That they might be, but it seems we offer them no refuge. Accorded refugee status if not deported to the charnel houses they’ve fled, they’re not allowed South African citizenship. Children born to refugees remain refugees,” he laments.
