Cape Town – Hundreds of refugees at the Bellville Paint City camp are once again fearing for their health after the withdrawal of their shower facilities following the expiry of the contract to provide them. They now fear that the withdrawal of their ablution blocks will follow.

Until Monday morning, when workers came to disconnect the showers, there were 20 shower cubicles and 12 ablution blocks at the site.

A couple of taps used mainly for laundry are now the only sources of running water.

The alarm was raised on Monday by Women and Children Concern (WCC) secretary Hafiz Mohammed, who speaks on behalf of the refugees.

“The protesters in Paint City have rejected all offers, including reintegration or voluntary repatriation to countries of their origin,’’ said Koza.

"Department of Home Affairs spokesperson Siyabulela Qoza said they were aware of the matter and were resolving it. Although by midday yesterday (Tuesday) the showers had yet to be returned.

“The provision of these facilities and services is a temporary measure offered on humanitarian grounds while we are approaching the courts for an eviction order."
So governments answer to resolving a humanitarian issue is to evict them.

Institutionalised Xenephobia at work.

Well, then with all due respect, and politely, the protesters (or refugees, I'm not sure what's who now) can go **** themselves.

Why are they being offered choices here? Arrest them and ship them off to Lindela to await their fate like all other illegal aliens.

No, its governments answer to a group of people who are not prepared to accept offers (one of which was re-integration). At some point you can no longer "help" a person who doesn't actually want to be helped and just wants to freeload.

This is about sweeping things under the table , as usual.

So much for the site supposedly set up at Wingfield and the promise of the refugees being moved shortly.

Each to their own in their opinion then.
At some point the helping hand needs to be removed when options being presented are just being rejected.

Same thing as the supposed refugee caravans to murica.

Entitled hopeless cases that was sold on easy free stuff "elsewhere".

They screw up their own countries and then demand others recompense them.
