Story of stowaways
Both Alex (left), 25, and Zerihun, 29, live in Djibouti without documentation. They have been stowaways on ships to places as far away as Cape Town and even Singapore. Now they clean cars and clear rubbish for money. “It’s a dog’s life, living like that, having to run from police,” Zerihun says. “No, we live like soldiers,” Alex objects.
