South Africans Mock Zimbabweans Over #ShutDownZimbabwe Protests, Urge Them To Return Home




South Africans on social media are mocking Zimbabweans after the hashtag #ShutDownZimbabwe made it to the trends list.

The South Africans mocked their neighbours for tweeting about the #ShutDownZimbabwe protest from the safety of foreign countries.

They called on the Zimbabweans to return home to fix their woes, instead of burdening other countries.

This comes after trade unions, student organisations and internet activists called for a stay-at-home protest on May 9.

The #ShutDownZimbabwe protest is in response to the worsening economic conditions and ill-equipped public transport system.

South Africans called on Zimbabweans residing in their country, legal or otherwise, to return home to take part in the protests.

The Southern African country has noted an increase in nationalist and anti-foreigner sentiments.  Vigilante groups such as Operation Dudula and the Dudula Movement have stepped up anti-foreigner rhetoric mainly targeting Zimbabweans.

Unsurprisingly, South Africans seized the #ShutDownZimbabwe protests to push for Zimbabweans to leave their country.


Below is how some South Africans reacted to the #ShutdownZimbabwe protests:



People should be singing #ShutDownZimbabwe on their to boarders out SA entering Zimbabwe not on twitter while chilling in SA go help your country needs you.


Zimbabweans in Zimbabwe are fighting for their rights through shutdown. Cowards & Parasites Zimbabweans are demanding citizenship in foreign country like S.A.🚮🚮🚮#ShutDownZimbabwe
