Zimbabwe As A Country Has Moved To South Africa - ANC
A senior official of South Africa’s ruling party, the African National Congress (ANC), has blamed the United States and the United Kingdom for the mass exodus of Zimbabweans from their country to South Africa.
Speaking at the party’s Western Cape elective conference on Saturday, 24 June, ANC secretary-general Fikile Mbalula said it looks as if all Zimbabweans have migrated to South Africa.
Mbalula said Zimbabweans are everywhere, from Gugulethu to Khayelitsha.
Gugulethu is a township in the Western Cape Province and is 15 km from Cape Town, while Khayelitsha is located on the Cape Flats in the City of Cape Town.
Mbalula claimed that Zimbabwe’s economic challenges that have resulted in mass emigration were caused by the U.S. and Britain. He said:

Zimbabwe as a country has moved to South Africa. From Gugulethu to Khayelitsha, there is Zimbabwe there.
