Zimbabweans In The Diaspora Feel A Longing To Return Home

Zimbabweans forced to move abroad due to years of economic turmoil have urged President Emmerson Mnangagwa to deal with the political and economic crisis bedevilling the country.

Zimbabweans based in neighbouring South Africa who spoke to Newsday said that they are now ‘tired’ of living as second-class citizens.

In an interview with Newsday, one Grammy Kasindi of Mt Darwin said:

Almost every one in 10 Zimbabweans you see in South Africa is well trained, but they do inferior jobs there because life is hard to back home.

We are homesick, we want to come back home and develop our country. We are bottled in South Africa. We have no social life there.

I wish our President could see this. He may have a change of view. Politicians must do their work and we will come and do ours and build our country.

Zimbaweans returning to South Africa after the festive season have had to endura long, winding queues at the Beitbridge Border Post.
