Batshu is misguided on foreign workers

For many years, governments of developed countries in Europe and America attracted and used migrants to power their economies. Even to this day, these countries continue to open doors to migrants to do jobs, which their citizens are not skilled in, or are not interested in. Next door in South Africa, Batswana used to work in gold mines and brought wealth back home and helped to build that country’s economy.

The infrastructure that the economic growth gave birth to, due to engagement of migrant workers from neighbouring states is still in South Africa to this day. In fact, South Africa’s economy is where it is today because of foreign workers. Half a century after we gained our independence, we still import maize, vegetables, and other foodstuff from South Africa.

It is therefore important that those Batswana who are trying to produce food for this country should be allowed to employ as many people as possible, including migrant workers.
