Bad news for Foreign Drivers this morning after this new policy was introduced.


In South Africa, a new policy concerning foreign nationals is going to be introduced. Truck drivers were dissatisfied a few months ago since the majority of driving jobs were given to foreigners. 

In the year 2019, a Zambian minister adopted a rule that would benefit the Zambian people; as of today, it is unlawful for people from other countries to work as truck drivers in Zambia. 

This law will assist a large number of South Africans; ideally, any job that a South African can perform should be assigned to a South African. Foreign nationals should be assigned positions that need uncommon abilities; this mindset could help reduce South Africa's unemployment rate. 

I have a lot of admiration for the Zambian Minister because he leads by example and is not scared to make decisions that will improve the lives of Zambians. 

Many countries, such as Botswana, have already implemented the law; it is only South Africa that has yet to do so, according to trustworthy sources. 

Prior to the law, if you had a certain code of license, it didn't matter what nationality you were from; if there was a vacancy and jobs were available, you would obtain a job. 

When it comes to jobs, I feel compelled to bring up an essential point: currently, the majority of companies no longer distribute advertisements; instead, they just ask employees whether they know anyone looking for work. 

Nowadays, you acquire a job based on a relationship, which is one of the main reasons why the unemployment rate continues to rise, as some opportunities slip into the wrong hands. I like the fact that these rules are now being implemented, as they will benefit South Africans.
