The comment by President Thabo Mbeki last week that South Africans just have to live with the flood of Zimbabwean refugees needs to be questioned.
It seems the president has given up hope of ending the plight of the Zimbabwean illegal immigrants.
Nothing has been forthcoming from Mbeki on how the situation is to be resolved in Zimbabwe; only that they are in talks with that government and the people of Zimbabwe must also find a solution to their problems.
It is apparent that Zimbabweans have given up hope of finding solutions on their own, as members of the opposition party are being harassed daily by their government agents, hence the huge influx of illegals into our country.
The president must also remember the local people still believe that some of the immigrants are here to "steal" their jobs, especially in the unskilled and semi-skilled markets.
They are also blamed for crimes committed around the country.
Our health and social sectors are also stretched to the limit because of the current situation.
If we can live with the estimated three million illegals now, excluding all the other illegals who flood the country, I wonder what the mood would be like in the next year or so.
