No To Zimbabweans Work Permit — Put South Africans First Allegedly Reveals Their Next Plan

South Africans, especially members of putting South Africans first group, have revealed that they will be marching across the country on 24th November 2021, to protest against work permits for Zimbabweans. One of the conveners, Kwena Molekwa said that enough is enough. She said that South Africans cannot continue to bear the yoke of other countries while its own citizens are suffering from unemployment and Joblessness. Another South African youth said that they will not be intimated to back out of the protest, insisting that the March will certainly take place. He also added, “Put South African's First March on the 24 November will proceed in earnest, We will not be deterred, this is our country and we going to save it, the Zimbabweans will leave, South Africans always get what they want through protest marches, unfortunately. No, To ZIM Work Permits”. This is a recent development.

However, many Zimbabweans, including some South Africans, are urging the government under the control of President Cyril Ramaphosa to do everything possible to halt or stop the protests or March, saying that it is aimed at being violent. They said that there are xenophobic elements who are championing this cause, disclosing that everything about put South Africans first is xenophobic, as they even ask for the disbanding of the organization. Another South African first group member wrote on Twitter that it would be nice to start the March from the Zimbabwean embassy so that they can feel the seriousness of the issue at stake. He then added, “On the 24 November, a protest March to the Zimbabwean Embassy is necessary. We must show the whole world that Zimbabweans have normalized parasitism”. Several South Africans said that they are not happy with the ANC government for continuously ignoring South Africans.

A South African youth lamented that it is good they also visit employers who prefer to employ Zimbabweans instead of South Africans. He added that many Zimbabweans do not even use work permit to get jobs, “Understand that these Zimbabweans don't even use these permits to get employment Zimbabweans create their employment, they sell brooms they are not teachers, they make couches in the street they are not nurses everyday they work hard to provide for themselves”.
