SA Ladies who Have Children for Zimbabweans will Follow Their Husbands Back to Zimbabwe - Sephara

Many in South Africa are eagerly anticipating December 31, when the 'Grace Period' provided to Zimbabwe exemption visa holders expires, a decision made by the department of Home Affairs last year.

A four-year work permit was issued to Zimbabwean nationals who had entered the country illegally. After the permission expired, most of the beneficiaries were seeking for new means to stay in South Africa.

In order to get South African citizenship, many immigrants married South Africans.

Disgruntled by the trend of African women marrying Zimbabweans, a South African man named as Sephara has taken to Twitter to express his views. The "grace period" for South African women who had children with Zimbabweans will expire, he warned, and those women will be forced to return to Zimbabwe.

By saying the child's true citizenship comes from the father, he said the boy will return to Zimbabwe with his father.

As stated on Twitter, these are his exact words:

"When their ZEP licenses expire in December, South African women who had children with foreigners will be forced to return to Zimbabwe. In Zimbabwe, where their father is a citizen, the law requires the children to accompany their father." Quite the contrary, in fact.
