Expansion Of Operation Dudula Worrisome

Expansion Of Operation Dudula Worrisome

There are fears that more Zimbabweans living in neighbouring South Africa could be in danger of xenophobic attacks as Operation Dudula has spread to Durban and other areas.

Operation Dudula is an anti-African immigrant movement in South Africa led by Nhlanhla “Lux” Dlamini, whose real name is Ntlantla Mohlauhi.

The activists blame undocumented foreigners, particularly Zimbabweans, for the high crime and unemployment rates in South Africa and are pushing for all illegal immigrants to leave.

South African television channel, eNCA recently reported that Operation Dudula was extending its branches to other provinces with its first launch being in KwaZulu Natal.

Zimbabwean national, Mbodazwe Banajo “Elvis” Nyathi, was killed and set on fire by vigilantes in Diepsloot, Johannesburg

on Wednesday last week, the day Lux visited the area.

Local political analysts say the spread of Operation Dudula to other provinces in South Africa is worrisome. Analyst Rejoice Ngwenya said:

Our countrymen can only be safe if vigilante groups like Dudula are immediately disbanded.

The SA government and the SA police (SAP) cannot continue to condone the wanton abuse of rights.

What this really means is that we now also have a right to wage war against anything South African in Zimbabwe.

If the South Africans don’t value our lives, why should we value our business co-operation?

South African President Cyril Ramaphosa is in denial and his high sounding rhetoric counts for nothing until he directly confronts Dudula as another loss of life cannot be tolerated.

Another political analyst, Vivid Gwede, said regional leaders should come together to address the challenges in both South Africa and Zimbabwe. He said:

Operation Dudula and its attendant fallout of xenophobic violence are inexcusable on the part of the people and government of South Africa.

Equally, there should be a reflection in the whole of SADC on how to deal with historical inequalities in South Africa, poor economic performance and political problems in countries like Zimbabwe and the challenges of scarce economic opportunity and migration.

South Africa President Cyril Ramaphosa said the ruling African National Congress (ANC) cannot support Operation Dudula, describing the movement as a “vigilante-like force”.

He accused the group of trying to divide African people.

Pane nyaya pa Dudula apa,, if there is anythng Mr President fears is the return of more than 3 million Zimbabweans in the diaspora before election, that is why he denies Diaspora vote,,anoziva kt vano supporter CCC..
Then on the part of Ramaphosa,,he feels this operation is well timed kt if Zimbabweans return before 2023 they will go and vote against zanu, thats why his govt is scrapping the Zim Exemption Zimbo guys dzokai hatichadiwa officially and otherwise.

SADC should stop boot licking South Africa and its dog section, i see south africa as wanting to be a leader of other Nations and that has to stop because we are not scared of south africans but respect them as humans not animals.

if south africans behave like dogs, its time we treat them like dogs and its an easy road. Ramaphosa is now stoping this dudula thing but jus comment on it as if its not happening where he is and its 2uu bad...

What surprises me is that we rush to offer state assistance for the funeral and stop there. Why do we not say out what steps we have put in place to help to stop these xenophobic attacks. Our struggling economy and Government draconian policies are driving our people out of the country. Recently we drove and still driving doctors and nurses out of the country. No matter where one goes, home is best. There are Zimbabweans who want to come home, but they have no busfare. I propose that the second administration arranges buses to go down south to pick those who want to come back home. Let us not start talking about their voting patterns when they come back home. Let us champion bringing our children back home. [[ VOTE CCC FOR REAL CHANGE ]].

the bus drivers will surely stay after they see what a developed economy which will change their lifes really looks like

Dudula is their own creation and they hide behind it. If South Africans want this to stop, it can but they are benefiting silently. I foresee a dead economy soon in SA due to this vigilantism nonsense. Durban port will be deserted for other ports soon.

South Africans are right.most robberies in that country are committed by Zimbabweans and moscans. Criminals wanted here are hiding in SA. Zimbos must come back and together we sort things home. Look at Harare today go to mbare foreigners are running tuckshops there yu go in CBD the same thing. Locals are being pushed to locations

The vigilantes are a law unto themselves but there's nothing we can do about as foreigners. My advice to my fellow Zimbabweans is, please return home safe before it's too late zvirinani tife nenzara pane kupiswa please dzokai kumba hama dzangu.
