South Africa is not different from other African ountries ,we need to look at success of other countries.The unemployment rate in Ghana 6.7% Tanzania 9.7% and DRC 11% all this countries had got legislation that prohibits all foreign nationals to participate in a informal sector.
In our Country South Africa 80% of small business are owned owned by the foreign nationals and they don’t employ South Africans.The government must introduce a legislation that allow South Africans to trade in small towns,rural areas and inner city economy.It’s unacceptable these foreign nationals can trade in our country but we cannot trade in their Country.
It’s unfair for South Africans to compete with these foreign nationals that are founded by their government while we struggle for that.South Africans must come first to fight this unemployment. Foreign nationals must get jobs on the scarcity of skills
