SA Govt To Inspect Cape Farms After Clashes Between Zimbabweans And Basotho

SA Govt To Inspect Cape Farms After Clashes Between Zimbabweans And Basotho

The South African Government will conduct an inspection of farms in the Langeberg Municipality in April following complaints made about the employment of undocumented migrants in the agricultural sector.

The inspections will take place in Ashton, Robertson, McGregor and Montagu from Monday, 11 April to Thursday, 14 April.

The exercise will be carried out by the Department of Employment and Labour’s Inspection and Enforcement Services in conjunction with the Department of Home Affairs and SAPS.

Home Affairs will be testing the authenticity and validity of the workers’ documents.

The inspections follow clashes between Zimbabwean and Basotho seasonal migrant workers on Thursday and Friday, 16 to 17 March, in Robertson over jobs in the area.

The department of labour said its inspectors will be checking compliance with the Unemployment Insurance Act (UIA), Compensation for Occupational Injuries and Diseases Act (COIDA), Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA), Basic Conditions of Employment Act (BCEA), and the National Minimum Wage Act (NMWA). Western Cape Chief Inspector, David Esau, said:

Our inspections are not punitive but collaborative to ensure that workplaces adhere to the rule of law and promote a healthy and safe working environment.

However, we will be very hard on employers who are deliberately operating outside the parameters of the law.

Very soon, if Zimbabwe put its house in order SA farmers might be coming back to Zimbabwe.
Zimbabweans are hard workers and labour here is very very very cheap, business people in Zimbabwe are making products coz all they pay is ZESA and WATER bills, salaries are paid from their pocket money 😀

To be sincerely honest in my humble opinion without being sentimental of course without offending anyone who thinks differently from my point of view and without hiding any thoughts in my mind and without lies,to the actual truth with my clear open mind and clean heart,expressing what ever is embedded inside me for a long time which I didn't say just because I was nervous.But Today, by gathering all the courage and motivation, I just want to say that I actually feel and think that I have absolutely nothing to say🤸😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 😂 😂
