Meet Rudo Muchemwa, she is a University of Zimbabwe graduate. She is in South Africa where she is looking for a job as a maid. She is not alone, there are thousands of Zimboz like her. These are victims of ZANUPF’s failures. Their whole lives are gone due to ZANUPF’s corruption
Many Zimbabweans are economic refugees in South Africa. Meanwhile, EFF MP Mbuyiseni Ndlozi has urged authorities to let people from African countries back into South Africa as he said if they are not let back in, there will be a humanitarian crisis bigger than COVID-19.
