A Message To Zimbabweans In South Africa
To my fellow countrymen,
This communique is specifically to you, Zimbabwean men and women; who are currently in harm's way in South Africa because of the xenophobia attacks.
Firstly, I would like to remind you that for the most part, the majority of South Africans are a loving, accommodating people. They have embraced you as their own. Selflessly, they are on your side; putting their precious lives in harm's way, fighting this barbarism: xenophobia. You must always be thankful for their unquestionable support during this dark hour.Be that as it may, there are a few bad apples; whose actions are diluting the purity of many good South Africans.
I know you my people.I can proudly say you are a unique people. Intellectually, you are mightier, very industrious, naturally peaceful, very resilient and respectful. Everywhere you go , you always champion in every fraternity. I know you are not a violent people and I know you are very resilient. More importantly; you welcomed and helped a lot of foreigners when Zimbabwe used to be a bread basket of Africa. Helping others is what you do for a living.
Be that as it may, I say to you with love, use your sound judgement. It's not worth losing your precious lives. Remain peaceful and if it means going back to Zimbabwe; do it with honour. I understand your struggles.
