“Stop Harassing Foreigners & Go To School” ANC’s Snuki Zikalala Sides With DA, Condemns Operation Dudula

 

Zikalala has condemned the ongoing Operation Dudula and the Dudula Movement, which have been targeting foreigners and foreign-owned businesses.

The ANC veteran condemned the movements as being xenophobic and argued that Dudula is stirring up dangerous sentiments among South Africans.

Said Zikalala

“The majority of our youth are unemployed. I think Operation Dudula is a very dangerous movement because they saw a gap in that, they started hyping South Africans’ emotions, and we are saying as the ANC that it is inhuman what they are doing.”

Zikalala went on to say that Operation Dudula members have no right to harass anyone because they are not law enforcement officials. He advised them to go to school instead so that they can acquire critical skills to make them more employable.

“They should not be harassed. Those Dudula people must go to school get skills instead of marching and harassing foreign nationals. It is unacceptable.”

The ANC stalwart echoed some of the sentiments made by the opposition Democratic Alliance (DA) last week. The DA called on all foreigners to be given an amnesty to allow them to regularise their stay or return home unmolested.

The DA also said that the foreign nationals are being unfairly targeted and scapegoated for SA’s high unemployment rates.

Gwen Ngwenya, the head of policy for the DA, called on the South African government to resolve the issue by giving foreigners an amnesty.

“A critical proposal is to provide an amnesty period for all undocumented migrants. Giving them an opportunity to either return to their home and attempt to re-enter legally, without prejudice, or to apply for the relevant visa from within SA.

“Why should foreign nationals not be given amnesty when home affairs does not have their act together? Just like driver’s licences, a punitive approach risks lumping the innocent along with those who had no intention of following the rules,” as per Sunday Times.
