Opinion: Advantages of Home Affairs Refusing to Renew Zimbabwean Exemption Permit.

The South African authorities has done so well in accommodating the people of Zimbabwe in our country for close to four years through the Zimbabwean Exemption Permit which gave a zimbabwean holder the right to live and work in our country.

The initiative which was first launched on 1 January 2018 was slated to last for a period of four years (31st December 2021), but the refusal of the South African government to renew the permit for its beneficiaries has stirred up unpleasant reactions from Zimbabwean community in South Africa.

Recent report also proved that these individuals sued the government of South Africa over their refusal to hacken to the demand of beneficiaries.

In today's article, we will be looking at some of the advantages of our government refusing to renew the Zimbabwean exemption permit.

1) More Jobs will be Created: the increasing number of Immigrants who are living and working in South Africa is so overwhelming and if this permit is not renewed, it will compel zimbabweans to leave South Africa thereby providing more job opportunities for local citizens.

2) Population of Urban Settlers will Reduce: Most of our major cities like; Capetown, Durban, Johannesburg, Pretoria etc are densely populated by immigrants. If eventually these Zimbabweans don't get a renewal of their documents, they will be forced to return home then more urban areas will reduce in population.

Criminal Activities will Reduce: over the years, we have seen an increase in the number of crimes perpetrated by foreigners in our land, Zimbabweans included.

This has also led to the rise in campaign demanding for the Immediate repatriation of illegal Immigrants as a way of curbing the issue of insecurity ravaging the nation.

When Zimbabweans don't get to renew their permits, there's high possibility that most of the crime perpetrated by their country men will drastically reduce in our society.
