As the tension continue to build in Zimbawe, illegal Zimbabweans in South Africa have started a demonstration and protest march in Hillbrow Johannesburg, calling on SADC, AU and UN to act and Free Zimbabwe.
The agitators are saying that the world leaders must rise up now and respond to the mayhem in that country before it spirals into other Southern African countries, and by that time it would have been too late.
But a reaction from a social media user Charlotte Smit noted : When farms and businesses were stolen from their owners, nobody complained. Now there’s nothing left of the country and its infrastructure and suddenly they start demanding again…
But another user Lungelo Phelele Khuzwayo with a divergent opinion, has this to say: Let’s get facts straight… Nobody complained? Morgan Shangarai was very vocal and against land hostile take over. He went to Britain for intervention. Even South African government condemned it saying it will cripple economy.
Sabelo Ntshangase another contrbutor said: Go to Zim and sought out your issues. We have enough on our plates as well. You were illegally given Hillbrow, Yeoville, Cosmo City, Diepsloot, JHB Hospital, Hillbrow Hospital and etc by a certain ruling party while our people are languishing in shacks and congested in townships.
Natale Crafford observed: They chase them away and now they demand their help? I have absolutely no hatred towards them, but I cannot quit my job because I don’t like my boss yet still expect him to pay my bills?
Zimbabweans are praying and hoping the world will stand up for them in this time of national and economic crisis.
