I have come to stay forever – not to work

I have come to stay forever – not to work, by Speisa.

An asylum seeker from Somalia, says in an interview with Lithuanian journalists that he has come to Germany to live well on taxpayer-funded grants for the rest of his life, without having to work. As soon as he has received a German citizenship he also plans to bring his whole “little family” of ten people, he says.

Journalists from Lithuania’s largest news portal Lietuvos Rytas (Lithuanian Morning) visited an asylum center in Munich. The 1,200 asylum seekers were from Libya, Somalia and Sudan.

The Lithuanian journalists were astonished when they realized that some of the Somalis they interviewed were quite open about their desire to avoid having to work. “A Somali told me that he had decided to stay in Munich because of the generous contributions and good public services.”
