Operation Dudula has officially announced that they no longer just aim at illegal immigrants. Even legally documented migrants doing menial jobs in SA are not going to be spared. The Secretary of National Movement, Zdile Dubula, made the announcement at the opening of the Western Cape office in Cape Town on Saturday.
According to Dubula; they are against illegal immigration. But now that ministers say local business is only for South Africans. The other is that even if you are legally located in the country, you cannot work unless you have a rare skill. Now these are illegal and legal immigrants. If you're legal here, you shouldn't be working in a restaurant. Working in a restaurant does not require any special skills.
The controversial Operation Dudula movement opened its new branches in Western Cape branch on Saturday. Dubula said the movement had strong support in the province. And according to their statement, the West Cape Town will bear more branches. Dubula said he hoped the growing movement would rid the province of deadly blackmail demanding protection fees from foreigners doing business in the cities.
Dubula denies that the movement is xenophobic. He said it only forced the government to enforce immigration laws. Western Cape MEC Public Security and Police Reagan Allen said he marked the start of Operation Dudula in the province and hoped the movement would proceed according to law.
According to their leader, they want to negotiate with our government to enforce this law. [This] will not turn violent. [The ball] is now in the hands of the government. If they (the government) cooperate, there will be no violence. He also denied that the movement was aimed only at African immigrants.
