The country is well aware of the fact that it is overwhelmed by foreign nationals. However, these foreigners have been doing certain things that many South Africans do not agree with like selling drugs. Recently, Somalian nationals burnt down almost 12 taxis in the Eastern Cape in what could be called a war between taxi drivers and Somali nationals. The minister of road and transport went straight for the jugular when addressing this matter.
In an address in the Eastern Cape regarding the issue of what happened last week, Fikile Mbalula stated that South Africa needs to take its people more seriously. According to him, the reason why there are so many foreigners in South Africa is because everyone can open up a business whenever they want.
He explained that in Ghana there are certain jobs and businesses that are restricted to people who do not live there. He explains that South Africa also needs to set aside jobs and certain businesses that only South Africans can run.
This according to him will limit the amount of foreigners that come into the country because they will know that they can't just come in the country and start any business they want. This is what he was explaining while dealing with the whole Somalian vs taxi driver war.
The minister of transport has a valid point when it comes to this one. The main reason why South Africa has a lot of foreigners is because they come here to seek jobs or start businesses. We can see that many businesses have foreigners employed and many other businesses are run by foreigners. If this businesses were restricted less people will come into the country because they know they will be a great chance that they might starve.
