It is a Big Fat Lie that Zimbabwean nationals are Living Large while SAns are Unemployed - Magezi.

The recent segregation existing between South Africans and the people of Zimbabwe is gradually taking a new turn as the two opposing parties take turns in dragging themselves on social media.

However, a Zimbabwean Man has given some indepth analysis of the controversy existing between South Africans and Zimbabwean nationals. According to his statement on Twitter and it reads:

"Deliberate lies told about Zimbabweans living in South. I have observed that the social media hype on issues concerning black African foreigners in South Africa have been given a political profile; with an intense desire to mislead anyone who is quick to believe that the failure of the South African economy to create jobs is an outcome of the presence of Zimbabweans and the generality of foreigners in SA.

The lies are in most cases intentional and are peddled to establish a narrative that services nothing much but political spin.

It is a lie that Zimbabweans are living large in SA, it is a big and fat lie that they are all employed and that South Africans are not simply because the jobs that they should be having are all taken by Zimbabweans. The Zimbabwean community in South Africa is facing the same and/or even the worst economic predicament as locals.

The majority are caught between the rock and a hard place. Many haven't lived in Zimbabwe for more than a decade and the dilemma of leaving SA for a dysfunctional Zimbabwe is real.

The issue here is simply that of a desperate people who are trying to survive. Well meaning people should interrogate the reasons why it is not easy for immigrants to simply "go back home".
