New political party want all foreigners out of SA by year end

A new political party which intends contesting in the 2019 elections is calling for foreign nationals to leave South Africa by the end of 2018.

The African Basic Movement Party has reportedly been registered with the IEC to take part in the upcoming elections.

Secretary-General Thembelani Ngubane says foreign nationals are responsible for the high crime rate in the country as well as the high unemployment rate.

He says South Africans are sitting with qualifications while foreigners are taking all the jobs because they accept very low wages.

They come to South Africa very easily without any form of documentation. We need to make it illegal for foreigners to come and get married to South Africans in order to get citizenship.

Thembelani Ngubane, Secretary-General

The aim of the African Basic Movement is to make sure that all South Africans are employed. Our policy states that we want to get rid of all foreign products that come here ready to go to the market like what the Chinese are doing. The cars should be assembled here in South Africa so that our people can get jobs.

Thembelani Ngubane, Secretary-General

Ngubane says that Joburg CBD is full of these foreigners who are distributing drugs for free because they are on a mission to destroy the youth and take over the country in a few years.

He also complained about Somalians and Pakistanis who are opening spaza shops on every corner flooding the market.

How many South Africans have spaza shops in Pakistan? But they come here and do as they please and tell us it is difficult to do what they do here in the country.

Thembelani Ngubane, Secretary-General

Ngubane says they have written to President Cyril Ramaphosa asking him to address this issue urgently.
