Why are there so many Zimbabweans in South Africa? I thought that when you implement socialism and steal all the land from evil white farmers, a utopia would get created?
Government can't steal land.

I have dual citizenship, thanks.

I do appreciate, though, your obsession with me. It's like having a 13yr old girl with a crush on me. Somewhat weird, somewhat flattering. Mostly weird, though.

Instead of a 13 year old girl it's a creature from Brackenfell

Lazy local vs Zimbabwean guy that brings his kids in to do the work while he sits on his phone all day.

Half the job done vs job completed but possible child labour issues.

Tough call.
Don't stereotype.

I know Zimbabweans and Malawians that are hard workers. They leave their children behind in Zim/Malawi to do the best they can here for their families. No theft, no ****, and they work hard and accurately (and they get paid more than the legal daily minimum of SA lest someone accuse me of paying R50 bucks a day or exploiting them)

Having been an immigrant in the UK, I feel for everyone now needing to make a tough decision. I know what immigrants have to put up with cos I experienced the same in the UK (where strangely I encountered racism/xenophobia for the first time) after living 30 years in apartheid South Africa. Also went through the turmoil of never knowing when VISA could be rescinded because of constantly changing rules.

I feel sorry for decent human beings who are only trying to do the best for their families. This applies to all of us also trying to leave this craphole with the current govt.

My humble 2c

I thought that was illegal? In your case, most probably.

That cannot be true...impossible according to the members of MyCadre.

You must be a grifter or a coconut according to their narrative and doctrine.

Now you know how I feel.
Interesting that you compared yourself to a 13yr old girl with a crush on me....... Somewhat weird, somewhat flattering. Mostly weird though.

"we"...?

Who's your "we" ?

If I have to keep teaching you English lessons, I'm going to have to start charging you as this is taking up a big chunk of my time.

If you are having trouble following conversations, get your kids to explain it to you.

Ag don't worry...when all the housework and garden work is done, all the creatures go back home.

Then we braai and eat koeksisters and laugh and laugh at people like you.

I didn't know you worked in the landscape industry, interesting. Learn something new every day, thanks.

Have a lekker weekend with braai and sweets.
