The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) says South Africa has the best refugee legislation in the world.
UNHCR representative for Southern Africa, Clementine Nkweta-Salami, says the South African government has taken great strides to meet its international obligations towards refugees.
Nkweta-Salami explains: "I think for the vast majority of refugees, they would acknowledge that they do receive good treatment from both the authorities and the South Africans in the communities. But at the same time we are all aware that we do continue to face incidents of violence, refugees being attacked.”
