A lot of individuals in South Africa have strong feelings about the recent incident in Tembisa. To calm the rising unrest, many people have offered their thoughts on the situation and potential solutions.
You may remember that people in Tembisa took to the streets in large numbers yesterday to protest the city's high cost of living. The demonstrators claimed that they had handed the mayor of Ekurhuleni a memorandum of demand, but that she had done nothing to resolve the situation.
Mr. Prokoreur General, a South African public figure noted for his outspokenness on matters of national concern, has recently attributed the city of Tembisa's poor service delivery to the large number of illegal immigrants living there.
He said the only way things might improve in Tembisa was if locals worked together to drive illegal immigrants out of the township's economy.
He cautioned the protesters that setting fire to an ESKOM substation would make the situation worse. When the problem of illegal immigration is solved, he said, "all else will follow" in Tembisa.
If we take his tweets at face value:
"Service Delivery is being stifled by the high number of non-Africans living in Tembisa. If all illegal immigrants in the Township are removed, the community's resources will be on an even playing field. Torching Eskom's electrical substations won't help ".
