Jacqueline Tizora questions SA's silence on Zimbabwe's shutdown

Journalist at the Daily Vox, Jacqueline Tizora says there is an unsettling silence that some South Africans have shown amid the unrest in Zimbabwe.

Speaking on the perceived lack of support and the long standing problem of afrophobia, Tizora says both countries share more than a border and South Africa cannot afford to ignore Zimbabwean citizens seeking asylum in the country.
