Migration in many directions
This article is from AllAfrica's Zambia feed/Times of Zambia. It talks about two South Africans arrested in Zambia for working without a valid work permit. Of course, there must be South Africans all over who work illegally but it goes against many people's general perception, which is that people from all over Africa flood to South Africa for jobs. But people travel in all directions in search of work, opportunities, a better life and sometimes get rich quick schemes. The article also talks about 12 Zambians arrested for illegal fishing in the DRC. Perhaps the immigration/emigration debate is more complicated than it looks.
