Any Zimbabwean who has lived in South Africa for more than ten years ought to be granted permanent residency there.
South African authorities have given Zimbabweans with ZEPs until December 31, 2022, to depart the country. Zimbabweans are blamed for most crimes and unemployment in South Africa, thus the locals are determined to see them deported.
Those who have a ZEP have likely been in South Africa for at least ten years. They've settled in, sent their kids to school here, and set up shop financially in South Africa. In other words, on December 31st, this year, all of these things will be finished.
It would be unjust and unfair to deport these Zimbabweans who have ZEP. For the most part, South Africans whine that illegal immigrants steal their jobs and commit crimes. ZEP holders, on the other hand, are identifiable due to the fact that their personal details are stored in the Home Affairs database. Only untraceable illegal immigrants in South Africa should be a priority for the government and the people there.
It would be cruel and inhumane to deny those with ZEPs the chance to work and claim for assistance in South Africa. Having spent a significant amount of time in South Africa, they should be eligible to apply for permanent residency there.
No one should be expected to suddenly pack up their lives and return to their hometowns, even if they have nothing to do there. The government of South Africa should ensure that there is a path for these people to obtain permanent residency and divert resources away from illegal immigrants.
