Luke Dzviti, the chairperson of the Zimbabwe Immigration Federation, has said South Africa will be worse than Zimbabwe in a few years it won’t be surprising to see South Africans looking for jobs north of the Limpopo river.
He said South Africa is collapsing at a faster rate and would be worse than its neighbour soon.
In a video posted on Twitter, Dzviti said:
South Africa is slowly heading the Zimbabwe way. At this rate, I think South Africa will be worse than Zimbabwe in a few years. And it won’t be surprising to see South Africans crossing the Limpopo River going to look for alternative jobs or food from Zimbabwe.
You see what’s more disturbing is that the food prices have gone so high and most people cannot afford to eat normal food the way we were doing about five years ago. The price of bread, the price of cooking oil most ladies are always complaining about the price of cooking oil which has gone up by double the amount. What is happening is not only painful by scary.
At this rate it’s unknown what the price of food will be like by this time next year when fuel price especially is going up by R2 – R3 at any given moment but salaries are not going up at the same rate.
South Africa is home to thousands of Zimbabweans and citizens of other countries who went there as economic refugees.
Its economy has, however, been stagnant for years amid fears it could be worse.
