Did The IFP Just Repeat The Employment Act During SONA Debate? Opinion.

The Inkatha Freedom Party on Tuesday afternoon during the State Of The Nation debate delivered their response to the Presidents SONA, which in all honesty was a good response address.. But what caught my attention was when IFP member Mkhuleko Hlengwa put up a suggestion that the employment act must be amended when it comes to the employment of foreign nationals in the country.

In his Hlengwa and the IFP proposed that the 2014 employment should be slightly amended, Hlengwa suggested as seen on shot above that employers before employing foreign nationals they should check if the is no South African available for that position. The thing is what Hlengwa and the IFP were proposing was already in the original employment act and how can you amend something that is already there and has been there for the last couple of years.

As i have shown in the picture above whatever Hlengwa said in his SONA response about the employment act it is already there, i found it quite strange that the IFP and Hlengwa might have missed a blatant act that is right in front of them. It could be maybe the intention was to tighten the amendments in order for employers to follow the employment act closely.
