Our exiles were never harmed by those now attacked

It is so sad to see Zimbabweans being ill-treated by our own people. The abuse is not only at grassroots level, but also right at the top.

We seem to forget that during apartheid we went into exile and we were never ill-treated by these people at all.

South Africa won't be a heaven forever because of its unstable political situation - and we will soon find ourselves in the same shoes as Zimbabwe.

Let us try to act more like human beings, and treat other people with respect and love.

I do not think that these unfortunate people are here simply because they want to be.

I am taking care of refugees' children at my centre today. I can not turn away children and l will never ever do that - no matter what it might cost.

Let's try to accept all our brothers and sisters during these hard times.
