EDITOR — Your story in last week’s edition titled “Zimbabweans pour into SA” refers.
I agree with the story as I already have two relatives who had never tried their luck in South Africa, but are now at different stages of relocating south of the Limpopo River following the controversial elections held last month.
One of them has already relocated to South Africa while the other one is also planning to do so. I can therefore safely say these two relatives of mine have already relocated to South Africa in the aftermath of the election and I am sure others will follow.
If the new government does not act in a responsible manner then this is going to be the trend. The government should really be concerned about this, but I suppose they are not!
Many Zimbabweans based in South Africa were contemplating returning home but I am sure most of them have put these plans on ice; what with the talk of the return of the Zimbabwe dollar.
The return of the Zimbabwe dollar is such a traumatising prospect; the currency should not be brought back anytime soon.
The few companies that are still operating are currently in the dark as to how things are going to work out. For most of them, it is back to the drawing board — these are the uncertainties that cannot be brushed aside.
Only time will allay these fears. Should the “new” government do the correct things then these fears would be definitely allayed.
