Rwanda and Burundi nationals talking over local shops.
I Have never talked about colour,race,language,Religion etc
But just raising a concern that any Patriotic Zambian Citizen would…
Zambia has been a peaceful and loving country since independence and because of that we receive a number of people from our neighboring countries who come for different purposes such as,seeking refugee, business, Tourism etc
This has brought increase in revenue as well as other positive developments in different sectors such as education, entertainment and so on.
These are all positive and very good things but it doesn’t mean that there are no negative issues no.
The rate at which these immigrants are getting into the country at is shocking and if its not checked it will have a negative impact in many ways:-
They are taking over all the running of our local shops (groceries and small supermarkets) which should be the source of income to our local people as well as can also contribute to boost of the economy because when money is collected from those shops,it is again put back to the system through different transactions as compared to these other nationals who are fond of sending money back home.It could be fair enough if these people would venture into other investments or ventures than just repossessing every shop from these local dwellers and makes it be there source of families Survival back home They do not rent houses no pay any form of utility bills,but make the some small local shops their houses, where is sanity and where have we gone wrong as a country on this one?
