Govt Speaks On Zimbabweans Set To Return Upon Expiration Of ZEPs

The government has said Zimbabweans that will be repatriated from South Africa following the expiration of their extension of stay must not be scared to come back as they will be welcomed without challenges.

Zimbabwe Exemption Permits (ZEPs) facility is set to expire on 30 June this year and thousands of Zimbabweans will be affected.

Home Affairs Deputy Minister, Ruth Maboyi-Ncube told Sunday News in an interview that there are systems in place to ensure that they smoothly fit into society. She said:

They (Zimbabweans) must not be scared as they are returning home. We are ready to welcome them. We have already started making preparations to ensure their smooth return.

The customs and immigration department is in the know and ready to assist. They are also aware that the nationals are returning with property and vehicles and know what to do in that regard. We promise a smooth passage as a Ministry.

We will ensure they get into our schools as long as they can produce proof of schooling in South Africa. We will then blend them with other learners in our schools. We are yet to meet with the relevant Ministry and discuss the finer details regarding schooling but we see no challenges.

She also noted that the government has:

i). facilitated a duty-free importation of goods, property and vehicles for nationals as they return as they are aware that returnees have accumulated movable property during their stay in South Africa.

ii). organised that returnees without identity documents go straight to the registry department and get national Identity Documents and passports. 

iii). arranged that Port Health officials demand at least two dose vaccinations, if they do not have them, they must produce a valid PCR test taken within the last 48 hours and if they do not have them, COVID-19 tests will be done at the border post.

  1. Do you understand that these people you are chasing away are the Africans as we are are from Europe, England etc. Why you are still using the division of white people and why the Zimbabweans only, is’t about the money their government don’t have. Africa must unite no more division all the boarders must be open there’s no need of them in Africa. The other thing I must remind you about these people are the son in laws, the father our grandchildren, our employers, heavy workers not choosing the jobs as South Africans, our stomachs as they are our rentals. The other thing I want our government to solve is only the labour laws because it seems as if these people are taking our jobs because they accept what ever they get but if the labour department can do its job there will be no such thing and it’s whereby our government can see that the youth of South Africa is lazy with everything work and school but they only want the office that are not qualified for. Please government think about all tgese sort of things before you chase them back and also think about their children that were born and grew up here

    1. Haibo, sis mina I’m not blaming government yase South Africa, mina efunu ukwazi yikuthi yona i Government yase Zim ibezelani abantu bayo, since Rhodesian until now come on Guyz badli mali laba bantu people they’re suffering, bayeke i Government izofundu ukuthi kungabi ngamaShona kuphela aphatha ilizwe abaphe neminye inhlanga baphathe khana bayofunda ukubambisana, mina I’m from Zim, uyabona uMtswaledi ngimethulela isigqoko to be honest yindoda e strong 💪ecabangela abantu belizwe lakhe, laba bona bezani🙏.

      1. I wish our South African government can do a honorable act of neutrilizing our African brothers and Sisters by giving them a SA citizenship instead of returning them to a difficult life in Zimbabwe. They are Africans we have accepted them and we love them.

    2. That’s true soso we re all African people why Zimbabweans dey have wives and children who’s support dem wen u chase them away,pliz Mr Minister think about this issue leav dis guys give dem da document only if anyone did crime charge according to da law.

  2. You will not know the importance of ZIMBABWEANS until after six months or 1 year of their leaving.
    1) Check the number of Teachers that you have in all your Schools
    2) Check the number of Medical Doctors
    3) Check the workers in Automobile Industry ( how many of them are South Africans? etc

    1. Let them go and allow us to fix the gaps they will leave behind. We all know they in those jobs for meager salaries ( they have allowed themselves to be abused for too long)

  3. Let them go and start checking stats housing, health care, ATM bombing, car hijacking, illegally mining, and unemployment

  4. Let them go and start checking stats housing, health care, ATM bombing, car hijacking, illegally mining, and unemployment

    1. Next should be Somli’s. They are all over and hv taken over townships and village spaces. Then the Lesothos, South Africans are suffocated in their own country

  5. As long as we use the colonial rules there is nothing for us as Africans.you can’t feel suffocated by your own people .Anyway a Republic should take steps and rule the way they want .let South Africa do according to their will .Hope it will help South African poor people to stand and benefit from this movement. But l doubt poor masses will remain poor despite the elimination of Rhodesia Africans
