We have seen that on numerous accounts when South Africa is trying to deal with the issue of foreigners, they are being leveled as being xenophobic by the foreigners and even by some of the South African leaders. They talk about this trying to scare off South Africans but it looks like it is not working this time around.
The minister of home affairs Aaron Motsoaledi has joined hands with the people of South Africa who are equally concerned about having so many foreigners who are occupying jobs in this country that are supposed to be occupied by South Africans. The minister started with a mission of investigating those permits that were issued in 2004. We know that already many people are having fraudulent documents.
The minister of home affairs has now made it clear that South Africa is not responsible for ensuring that foreign children born to foreign parents in South Africa are not entitled to have citizenship in this country. South Africa is not obliged to do give them citizenship. We know that many South Africans were worried about this as this would have meant that these people will be eligible to vote and we know which party they were going to vote for. It would have been a disaster if this was allowed.
