SADC Chairman, Robert Mugabe says South Africa’s neighbouring countries should do everything possible to ensure that their citizens don’t go to that country as they are worsening the situation of blacks who are still faced with serious challenges.

Addressing the media at the end of the Extra Ordinary Summit of SADC Heads of State and government on Industrialization, Mr. Mugabe said whites in that country live much more advanced lives than most blacks such as those in Soweto.

He says SADC is sorry for South Africa as the influx of foreigners in that country is not done by governments pushing them but they voluntarily go there because they regard the country as a heaven on earth.

Mr. Mugabe who is also Zimbabwe’s President said South African President Jacob Zuma during the Summit briefed the Heads of State in SADC on the measures his government has put in place in view of Xenophobic attacks.

He said Mr. Zuma said his government is educating citizens on the need to treat foreigners as part of South Africa owing to the assistance rendered to the African National Congress -ANC- in pursuant of ending apartheid.

Mr. Mugabe says the heads of state stated that they would support measures by South Africa’s government has taken to avoid similar incidences.

He has however wondered why foreigners opt to settle in South Africa even after finishing their education there when they have no income.

He says while skilled people may find jobs, unskilled foreigners worsen the situation for the majority blacks hence all countries should ensure that there citizens remain in their respective countries.

Mr. Mugabe has revealed that Zimbabwe hired buses in South Africa to transport about 8-hundred of its citizens upto the border where Zimbabwe buses ferried them into town.

He says while South Africa disputes that no people were burnt in the recent attacks, he is still convinced that they were burnt.

Mr. Mugabe adds that the topic of the recent xenophobic attacks in South Africa was not part of the Extra Ordinary Summit on Industrialization but came in as part of Any Other Business – ZNBC
