Foreigners in Cape Town say they’ll walk to Botswana or Namibia next week

Foreigners living in a church in the city center said they would leave before the start of the festive season.

Foreigners in Cape Town say they’ll walk to Botswana or Namibia next week

They’ve called the church home for weeks after being booted from outside United Nations offices in the CBD. They want assistance to leave South Africa due to xenophobic violence.

Refugee leader JP Balous said their plan to pack up and walk to the nearest border this week was delayed because four of their children drowned at a Sea Point Beach on Sunday.

He said they would start their journey next week.

“If it takes us a week to walk to Namibia, we’ll let it be. If it takes us three days to walk to Botswana, then we’ll choose Botswana.”

Meanwhile, traders and businesses in the vicinity have raised concerns, saying the situation is negatively affecting business.

Hotel 40 on Burg’s Tosca Korver said: “Tourism has been affected really badly. It looks like Mogadishu outside.”

Greenmarket Square committee member Seyni Diop added: “The tourists are too scared to come this way. It’s affecting our business.”

For now, scores of refugees are still camping out at the church, with mothers and children inside and many men sleeping in makeshift tents outside on the pavement.
