" I am Prepared To Stay Here Illegally" - Zimbabwean Teacher Says As ZEP Is Set To Expire

The ZEP are set to expire on the 31st of December this year. This will see a lot of people who have ZEPs be sent home after having lived in South Africa for years and some of them over a decade.


A Zimbabwean teacher by the name of Wilfred, shared his story with News24. He has been in South Africa for 15 years now. He is a deputy principal at a school in Midrand and has worked for both public and private schools in South Africa.


Wilfred says that he will be affected negatively as he has nothing to do in Zimbabwe, there are no job prospects and he has not been home in a long time as he only goes home if there are funerals. He says that he will probably lose his job and he does not know how his mother and siblings will survive back in Zimbabwe as he was the bread winner.

Wilfred says that he is prepared to stay in the country Illegally and do menial jobs as this will will survival of the fittest. Nonetheless, the Wilfred's story is sad. People are now expected to drop everything they have in the country and go back home. What happens to the children? What happens to their UIF benefits and all other things they ever worked for?
