The ANC’s current plans for South Africa’s Spaza franchises should be made public knowledge.
It’s no news that foreigners are buying up Spaza shops around South Africa, especially in the country’s rural areas and slums. Because of this, the local economy has collapsed, and locals are unable to compete with foreign owners’ prices in the marketplace.
Institutions like Put South Africa first and Operation Dudula have been active in recent years, attempting to rid their communities of immigrants.
The African National Congress is organising a drive against unauthorised immigrants who own “spaza” stores.
Secretary General Fikile Mbalula of the African National Congress has declared that the party will launch a large-scale battle against illegal immigrants who own spaza businesses in townships. According to reports, three kids in Naledi, Soweto, Gauteng province, died after eating stale biscuits and juice purchased from a spaza shop operated by foreigners.
