The South African government bans Zimbabwean Nurses

The South Africa’s Public Health Department’s Directorate is now  rejecting applications from nurses from Zimbabwe who wants to work on South African hospitals, that its neighbour is currently facing a staff crisis due to migration.

The applicants that were rejected, they are not happy at all. They wanted to come to South Africa because the economy in Zimbabwe is in its knees. The rejected applicants thinks that the

 South Africa government is wrong. It should adhere to The Sadc Protocol on Employment and Labour (2014) that compels member States to co-operate in all areas necessary to foster regional development and integration on the basis of equity and mutual benefit, like labour, social and human development, and social welfare. 

 “If it is true, I think it will be an issue of a department taking matters into its own hands, because we do not have any agreement to that effect in the Sadc and AU. That is not in line with the protocol that we know (Sadc Protocol on Employment and Labour). We expect a protocol that allows people to move around and get jobs around the region. This has to be explained.”

These SADC laws tries to ransom South Africa to take the Zimbabwean employment problems as its own. South African are battling with unemployment issues. They can't blame South Africa for rejecting those applications.
