Foreigners Complains Of Being Denied Healthcare In Gauteng

According to the South African immigration laws,people must come into the country legally with all the required documentation.However,all this has become a recitation in black and white as the immigration officials are nowhere to be seen carrying out their mandatory duties,the south african government has turned a blind eye to the fact that millions of foreigners are coming into the country illegally.No efforts has been made by the government to control the immigration and secure the borders.One could very well conclude that it the deliberate act by the government to let the borders run poruos and without the sufficient guards.Consequently,the south african government has to take care of the illegal people in terms of basic human rights.The foreigners have bevome the burden to the south african government which is already struggling to meet the needs of it's own citizens.Gauteng provincial government had earlier this year introduced the law that allows the outsiders access the healthcare for free like the roots citizens,this legislation has placed the foreigners at the receiving end since some of them are not working and illegal into the country.The group of foreigners have complained about the kind of treatment they receive in the clinic located in Hillbrow,this group told news24 that they've been turned away by the staff in the clinic after they failed to make an upfront payment before being treated.One woman from Zimbabwe told the media house that she had to send her young epileptic daughter back to Zimbabwe after he was denied medical treatment in Hillbrow clinic earlier this year.The Human Rights Commission have shown a great concern about the legislation that sidelines the foreigners.The commission views the legislation as hostile to the foreign nationals since some of them need an immediate medical attention.The south africans have always criticized the Human Rights Commission for standing up for the foreigners who voluntarily and illegally came into the country and later demands the services for free.Opinion it is quite surprising how the people come illegally into south africa and starts complaining about the things they knew right from the beginning.No country all over the african,European,Asian,South and North American continents that allows people to come illegally into their countries and demands to live in the pockets of the hard working taxpayers.Illegal immigration is a crime that comes along with bitter setbacks.South Africa has become very tolerant of the foreign people to an extent that they start feeling like the government is obliged to treat them like the roots citizens.Whenever the south africans raise such issues,the foreigners and other south africans would start labelling them xenophobic,this stance poses the question that why ahould people only have the nerve to challenge the south african government and never say anything about the countries like Botswana.
