The Minister is Police, Bheki Cele has cautioned farmers against employing Undocumented foreigners and illegal immigrants, saying that this is based on security reasons. He disclosed that most times, those employing foreigners make things difficult for the police because when the undocumented foreigners commit crimes, they are usually untraceable. The minister observed that farmers are one of the highest employers of illegal immigrants and undocumented foreigners, urging them to desist from such acts. Bheki Cele said, “One thing that we will have to correct, as one of the biggest employers, is the correct way of employing,” The police minister noted that until they employ right, then they are not employing. He said, “The reason will be one that is dominant, you say that South Africans are lazy. Most of the people who get arrested for farm murders, you will find are former workers of that farm”. He said that it is an excuse to tag South Africans as lazy.
Recall that some farmers have openly said that some South Africans are lazy, and cannot work like the migrants. However, the unemployed South Africans and members of put South Africans First group have said that the farmers are after cheap labour. Even foreigners are now tagging South Africans as lazy, saying that they complain a lot. One Zimbabwean migrant said that once they are paid, the South African workers would never return to work until they finish their salary on alcohol. However, Bheki Cele is suggesting that the farmers employ South Africans at least for security purposes. He said he visited the site of a farm murder, “I visited in Newcastle. We discovered that it is a former worker or because of their relationship they came back for revenge. There must be more work done to develop the relationship of a farming family”. He lamented that employment of undocumented immigrants causes the police a headache as they are untraceable.
