The marginalization claim often made by South African people may have been triggered by the attitude of local citizens towards a certain type of job opportunity.
You would recall that there's been claims in some quarters that South African citizens do not often avail themselves to certain job opportunities especially farming but they complain all the time that government of South Africa does not provide jobs for them.
Meanwhile, a South African lady has set the record straight by saying that most South Africans don't apply for government grants in rural communities where farming is predominant but they come out to blame foreigners always for getting this grants.
She further said that it is mostly foreigners that come out to apply for some of this grants disbursed by the government of South Africa.
According to her exact statement on Twitter:
"In the farming community the issue we have is when it's time for government grants, locals citizens disappear for weeks and only come to work after the grant money is finished but, take note there are tomatoes to be picked everyday."
