Clean-up operations are continuing at the United Nations High Commission for Refugees in Brooklyn in Pretoria following the eviction of more than 100 refugees yesterday.
The refugees had been camping outside the offices in the affluent Pretoria suburb since 2019 after fleeing from xenophobic attacks in the country.
The refugees are requesting to be moved to other countries – but not their countries of origin.
Many came to South Africa after their countries suffered war and collapsed economies.
The City of Tshwane’s waste management department is continuing to clean up after the structures were demolished yesterday.
