1 July 2009, Sudanese "Lost Boy" Aher Arop Bol at his spaza shop in Wonderboom, Pretoria and at the home of Sannie Meiring where he boards. He was born in a Dinka village in the Bahr el Ghazal region of Southern Sudan. Bol now lives in Pretoria. He runs a spaza shop which enables him to pay his UNISA fees (he is studying law) and maintain his two brothers, with whom he has been reunited, at a boarding school in Uganda. Bol actively identifies himself as a "lost boy", one of the tens of thousands of Sudanese children who were forced to leave their homeland because of their country's civil war.
