- A South African born woman has opened up about emigrating to another country on Twitter
- In her tweet, Karabo Ntsweng, tells SA citizens to follow opportunities abroad as the "government does not care about them."
- The tweet was met with thousands of reactions from locals who agreed with her
For many years now South Africans have been fed up with corruption, lack of service delivery, and general quality of life in the country. Most recently, the corruption within the ANC regarding Covid-19 relief funds has caused an uproar in complaints from the country's citizens.
In a Twitter post, a South African born woman has advised her fellow South Africans to abandon the country and make a home elsewhere, stating that they should follow opportunities to work in other countries since the "government does not care anyways."
"Yoh guys if you have the opportunity to go work overseas do it hey, screw SA. Our government doesn’t care anyway. So?."
Her tweet was followed by a response from another South African woman, Nonhle Beryl, who said that she had made the decision years ago and could not be happier.
"I moved abroad 12 years ago. Gave up my South African citizenship 2 years ago to become German. Every day I log onto Twitter I’m thankful I made those choices. If anyone, especially women, ever gets the chance to leave South Africa, LEAVE! Quickly."she wrote.
Both tweets were met with a plethora of responses from South Africans who mostly agreed with the sentiments of the women. Here are some of those comments.
"As soon as the borders open I’m resuming my plans to move to New Zealand . Having family that’s outside also makes thing easier. I’ve heard the good and the bad and can’t wait to move."
"I’m on this one, if the economy was much friendlier to its citizens, I’d definitely be giving up my South African citizenship."
While @Sekgametsi_ disagreed, saying:
"Leave for what? So if we all leave, who's gonna stay and fix the country, our home? I know South Africa is in a bad space, but leaving it to rot can't be the only option. Leaving the country won't fix the country's problems. But enjoy Germany."
Briefly.co.za also reported, South African personality Robert Marawa took to social media to voice his concerns regarding load-shedding. Robert made some accusations regarding those in charge in his tweet and has received a large amount of support from his followers.
He made claims that those in power were "looters" and it seems that many South Africans agree with his accusations. He tweeted his opinion last night and the tweet has since gained over 7 000 likes and over 2 000 retweets.
@Thato_Masemola replied: "I actually lived not far off from the Bryntirion estate where the president and some ministers live in Arcadia and in all my 7 years living there we've never been loadshed."
