Operation Dudula members storm Tshwane companies, force them to fire foreigners, drop CVs for locals

Tshwane Bahlali Dudula members yesterday marched to the Rosslyn industrial area calling on firms to stop employing illegal immigrants.

Members of the Tshwane Metro Police Department, SAPS, and private security companies were on hand to ensure peace.

Spokesperson for the movement, Joel Mphata, said they were not part of Operation Dudula, but aligned to interests to advance the employment of South Africans.

β€œThey should facilitate that process by engaging with us through our leadership. We will, from time to time, hand them the CVs of job seekers in our regions. We want a peaceful creation of opportunity for our people, including opportunity for small to medium businesses,” said Mphata.

He was joined by numerous young men and women who left their CVs, skills training certificates and IDs at various companies.

Tshepiso Dladla and Noxolo Sethosa said the number of youth sitting at home unemployed with qualifications was ballooning every year.

The group approached companies such as Tubecon, Nissan South Africa, Bidvest Panalpina Logistics and South African Brewery Rosslyn.

Mphata said the goal was to remind the private sector that youth unemployment stood at 35% in the fourth quarter of 2021, and they needed to come to the party.

β€œWe are going to go to all industrial areas across Pretoria, including Waltloo in Mamelodi and Hammanskraal and Ga-Rankuwa to go to the employers and say remove all illegal immigrants in your companies and terminate their contracts.

β€œThey should facilitate that process by engaging with us through our leadership. We will, from time to time, hand them the CVs of job seekers in our regions. We want a peaceful creation of opportunity for our people, including opportunity for small to medium businesses,” said Mphata.

The movement insisted that the government had not demonstrated political will to confront companies employing foreigners at the exclusion of South Africans. It said the laws and regulations in that regard had not been enforced by the state.
