Prisons and police stations don't usually take citizens on tours of their fortified facilities. But I will. And I will give you an insight into New Zealand's life behind bars and unveil the unseen side of the country's most notorious prison. My name is Sami (pronounced 'Sar me'). I was born in a town called Thohoyandou, which is Venda for 'head of an elephant'. I grew-up in quite a number of Southern African countries, simply because my parents were what you could safely term 'nomadic teachers'. My grandparents came from different tribes and countries. Had these tribes been races of different colors, I probably would be mauve in colour, or worse still, striped like a zebra or spotted like a leopard. But I'm just black, well not just, but something more like a moonless midnight. Here I am, working in one of Auckland's busiest government offices, when I am called to see the boss. There is a stranger with him from the Immigration Department, and the boss looks upset. My happy kiwi life was about to free-fall into Aotearoa's own Alcatraz, the Rock, and there was nothing I could do. Based on a true story.
