Going to South Africa to look for jobs no longer necessary, Zimbabwe is better: Mugabe

Speaking at a Zanu-PF Youth Interface Rally held in Gwanda on Saturday, President Robert Mugabe said that it is no longer necessary for one to go to South Africa to look for better opportunities like in the old days because Zimbabwe has better conditions than its southern neighbour.

However, his sons Robert Jr and Chatunga are based in South Africa while he revealed that his wife Grace Mugabe had travelled to the country to receive medical attention. Said Mugabe:

Let us help them and help prevent our youngsters border jumping to go to South Africa.

I know that in this province, especially the southern part of the province, the Kalanga area and the Beitbridge area, there is a tradition or at least there was, that a man is not a man unless he has been to South Africa to work there and then come with certain goodies and clothes for the wives.

I was here teaching in 1945 at Empandeni.

I realised that the majority of women who were coming to the mission to be assisted, had their husbands, all of them, working in South Africa.

So, going to Joni is no longer necessary. The conditions there are not better than the conditions created after Independence here.

There is land for you, which is a gain of the suffering that men and women from here together with others from other provinces went through.

During the World Economic Forum held in South Africa in May this year, Mugabe said that Zimbabwe is Africa’s most developed country second only to South Africa.

South Africa enables its jobseekers to find jobs by downloading fillable Z83 forms.
