Many South Africans feel threatened by the steady influx of immigrants from their neighbors. The scenario has sparked some debate in South Africa, where some expats report feeling unwelcome.
Many people in our country feel that immigrants are taking advantage of the system here, so much so that new groups are springing up specifically to combat them. This is especially clear in the service and labor sectors, where non-native speakers are often willing to work for less money. However, a South African woman who goes by the Twitter handle TK Nala has urged the people of Zimbabwe, Lesotho, and Swaziland to hold a vote to unite with South Africa because those nations can no longer provide for themselves.
When this is accomplished, she said, tensions between SADC countries would finally subside. She also added that all countries' riches would be divided fairly.
This is what TK Nala's Twitter statement states, at least according to him:
"To join the Union of South Africa, citizens of Swaziland, Lesotho, and Zimbabwe must initiate a referendum. This will put an end to the pointless stalemate, and all countries' resources can be distributed fairly”
