"Hire local" Ex-con Gayton Mackenzie Plans On Leaving Foreigners In South Africa Jobless

South Africa currently has one of the highest unemployment rates in the world, especially amongst youth. Millions of people are looking for jobs in the country, and many of them have been looking for work for many years and have been unlucky in getting hired or even getting responses. Some of these unemployed individuals are people who went to further their studies and graduated with degrees that they hoped would get them closer to their dream careers, but unfortunately, many of them are still unemployed and some of them are finding themselves working in sectors that they did not study for.

And the only sectors that are able to hire people even when they do not have the necessary qualifications are the retail and restaurant sectors, where people are able to work as cashiers, till packers, waiters, etc. at a store or a food business. But many citizens in South Africa feel like these sectors mostly employ people who are foreign nationals. Many citizens have complained about going to these businesses and being served by people who are not South African citizens, because they feel like this is the reason why the unemployment rate amongst locals is so high, because they are considered last to get employed.

That is why some people, like Gayton Mackenzie, created a political party where they are focusing more on ensuring that South African citizens are put first and opportunities are first shared with them. Gayton Mackenzie, an ex-con who found his way, decided to stand for the voiceless people and constantly shares his views about illegal foreigners occupying spaces in the country. Currently, Gayton is focusing on ensuring that businesses in South Africa hire local people, and not foreign nationals. Gayton shared this on his social media accounts.

We are being congratulated by the Shoprites, Spar, KFC, etc managers for dealing with illegal Somalian shops. Little do they know that they are next simply because their shops are full of foreign staff whilst our people are jobless. We want 100% local people. "

Do you think he is being fair?
