Chamisa "Concerned" About Zimbabweans Living In South Africa

Chamisa

MDC Alliance president Nelson Chamisa said the opposition party is concerned about the plight of hundreds of thousands of Zimbabwean economic refugees in South Africa.

In a tweet on Friday, Chamisa said, once in power, the MDC Alliance will ensure there is a vibrant economy that will allow Zimbabweans to return to their homeland. Chamisa said:

To all Zimbabweans living in South Africa, we are concerned about you, your challenges and seized with your situation.

We have opened platforms of engagement. Ultimately, we must fix our home base and that which has destroyed our beautiful and great country.

The immigration crisis facing the region is a result of too much diplomacy and too little action on the rigging of elections, governance deficits and multiple rights violations.

In order to solve the immigration challenges, we must end elections rigging and citizens repression.

Chamisa’s remarks come after South Africa discontinued special permits (Zimbabwe Exemption Permits) that benefited about 200 000 Zimbabweans living and working in the neighbouring country.

Hundreds of undocumented Zimbabweans cross the border into South Africa daily, and this has forced Pretoria to tighten its regulations and beef up security to keep them out.

I WOULD HAVE DONE MORE HARM THAN GOOD IF I HAD NOT JOINED THIS DEBATE. I WILL NOT TALK ABOUT THE WATER WHICH WENT UNDER THE BRIDGE. NOONE CAN RECOLLECT IT. LET BYGONES BE BYGONES. LET US FOCUS ON 2023 HARMONISED ELECTIONS.

THE STATE PRESIDENT DR ED MNANGAGWA IS ON RECORD CALLING, "ZIMBABWE IS OPEN FOR BUSINESS". LET US HELP THE PRESIDENT TO ACHIEVE HIS MANTRA. COMPANIES WILL NOT COME TO INVEST IN ZIMBABWE IF WE DO NOT PRACTISE WHAT WE PREACH.

THERE ARE THINGS WE DID NOT DO WELL AS ZIMBABWEANS IN 2018. THIS TIME AROUND NO POLITICAL PARTY MUST ALLOW ITS POLITICAL THUGS TO GO ABOUT BARRICADING ROADS TO PREVENT OTHER POLITICAL PARTY LEADERS FROM ACCESSING CERTAIN AREAS.

ZBC TV AND RADIOS MUST GIVE EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES TO ALL POLITICAL PARTIES TO CAMPAIGN ON THEIR PLATFORMS WITHOUT FEAR OR FAVOUR.

ALL PARTIES MUST ALLOW OTHER PEOPLE TO DO CAMPAIGNS WITHOUT INTERFERING WITH THEM. THEIR POLITICAL HOOLIGANS SHOULD NOT DECLARE CERTAIN AREAS "LIBERATED." WE WERE ALL LIBERATED IN 1980 BY ZIPRA AND ZANLA WAR VETERANS. WELLDONE ZANLA AND ZIPRA WAR VETERANS.

ZR POLICE DO YOUR WORK WITHOUT FAVOURING ANY POLITICAL PARTIES. DO NOT ESCORT POLITICAL HOOLIGANS BARRICADING ROADS WITH THE INTENTION OF BARRING CERTAIN POLITICAL LEADERS FROM ACCESSING CERTAIN AREAS.

ZR POLICE ALLOW OTHER POLITICAL PARTIES TO HOLD RALLIES AFTER NOTIFYING YOU. IT IS NO LONGER NECESSARY FOR YOU TO GIVE EXPRESS OR WRITTEN PERMISSION. GIVE ALL POLITICAL PARTIES ADEQUATE SECURITY.

ALL ZIMBABWEANS, LET US ASSIST THE STATE PRESIDENT TO MARKET ZIMBABWE TO OTHER COUNTRIES. LAST TIME HE TOOK A DELEGATION OF OVER 100 PEOPLE TO GREAT BRITIAN. IF THE CHANCE ARISES AGAIN LET US ASSIST THE PRESIDENT TO GO WITH EVEN BIGGER DELEGATION.

TO OUR OPPOSITION POLITICAL PARTIES, ALSO CAMPAIGN PEACEFULLY. IF ATTACKED REPORT TO THE NEAREST POLICE STATION. DO NOT RETALIATE. THE WORLD IS WATCHING US.

DO NOT CALL OTHER OPPOSITION POLITICAL PARTIES NAMES. YOU HAVE ONE POLITICAL ENEMY, WHICH YOU WANT TO UNSEAT LAWFULLY. TELL YOUR SUPPORTERS TO REGISTER AND GO TO VOTE.

DO NOT BE AFRAID TO CAMPAIGN IN COMMUNAL LANDS. GO THERE, KNOCK SOME SENSES INTO THEM. TELL THEM THAT YOU WILL GIVE THEM MORE FERTILIZERS AND OTHER INPUTS THAN THEY ARE GETTING. TELL THEM THAT FERTILISERS AND SEEDS BELONG TO THE GOVERNMENT AND NOT TO ANY POLITICAL PARTY.

YOU OPPOSITION POLITICAL PARTIES, FIELD ENOUGH POLLING AGENTS AT ALL POLLING STATIONS OTHERWISE YOU WILL FAIL TO PRODUCE V11 FORMS WHEN YOU ALLEGE RIGGING. YOU WILL NEVER PROVE RIGGING WITHOUT V11 FORMS.

OPPOSITION POLITICAL PARTIES AGAIN, FEED YOUR POLLING AGENTS BECAUSE IF YOU DO NOT FEED THEM OTHER PARTIES WITH PLENTY WILL FEED THEM. THESE ARE THE TYPES OF AGENTS WHO MAY BE MANIPULATED. FOOD FOR THOUGHT !!!!!

YOU SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS, DO NOT TELL LIES AGAINST THE PRESIDENT. YOU ARE ALLEGING THAT THIS NEW KID ON THE BLOCK, VA DOUGLAS MWONZORA, IS HAVING MEETINGS WITH THE RESIDENT, YET HE REFUSED TO MEET NELSON CHAMISA OF MDC ALLIANCE ON THE STANCE THAT HE WILL NEVER MEET ANY LEADER OUTSIDE POLAD. WOULD THE PRESIDENT DO THAT ? I DO NOT BELIEVE IT.

LET US NOW FOCUS ON 2023. IF OUR VOTES WERE STOLEN IN 2018, LET US PLUG HOLES SO THAT THEY ARE NOT STOLEN AGAIN. IF INDEED WE STOLE OTHER PEOPLE'S VOTES, LET US NOT DO IT AGAIN. IT IS EMBARRASSING.

YOURS SINCERELY

I appreciate the concern Mr Chamisa, but pointing fingers without any proof is just a mere waste of time. Assuming we rigged the election as you suggest, how come when you were confronted in concourt you couldn't bring up any single proof of the actual results that you led every Zimbabwean to believe you had. You say Zanu Pf rigged, you had the opportunity to turnover the result you claimed you had but you couldn't just because you are not as truthful as you claim to be. At least ED is doing something, and if you can't see it then that's your fault. # ED My President vision 2030 takaenda

SA should help it's neighbour out of the woods, failure to do so means the problems devilling the neighbour will spill over to their country. Look, now, you are already spending more on immigration issues @ the expense of other pressing issues.

Kusvika mdc alliance yarongeka zvekuti inohwina kanganwai even inin ndukuda kuti ihwinhe bt mmm zanu pf ma1, that party irimo mumamisha yakazara,kuzasi kwayo uko kwakarongeka tuma structure turiko hatuna kumira mushe.alliance is not that organized even mumatown macho matizere hatisi that organized.We need to organize and strategize otherwise hapana hapana. Social media has fooled Alliance to believe that we are many and we will win, but ther are many youths without social media accounts whos only access to info is through zbc and radio,we all kno who controls them and they know nothing about alliance.KUMUSHA KWAKANDIVHUNDUTSA
