Title The Hopefuls
Description Joe Ilembwa, 20, on the bed, Emmanuel Mafuta, 25 and Richard Nifasha, 24, in the room that Emmanuel and Joe share in a flat in Diep River, Cape Town. Both Emmanuel and Joe came from the Democratic Republic of Congo after fleeing political violence in Kinshasa with the hope that they could make it as professional soccer players in South Africa. Because of South African laws that prohibit foreign nationals from playing in local clubs unless they have work permits, they and many other talented young men from all over Africa can't play soccer and now work as security guards.
