South Africans respond to the movement

@sphamindlos said:

“The ANC government cannot stop people from protesting, it is their democratic right. I hope people from KZN are taking note. First, the ANC government watched and did nothing when South Africans were being slaughtered by Indians and now this!”

@belzchris commented:

“If they are here legally there should be no problem.”

@HerryMukondele1 posted:

“What are they running from if legally documented? We'd been patients for so long, and please Dudulas are not barbarians, all we need are traceable documents in South Africa. We have much ghosts so far out occupied our workspaces and killing our South Africans with drugs for money.”

Operation Dudula picks up momentum across South Africa, new movements pop up in the Northern Cape and KZN

Briefly News also reported that in June 2021, Dlamini launched his movement Operation Dudula and the organisation's main priority at the time was to rid communities of drugs and they went around conducting "clean up" operations, according to the BBC.

The members of the organisation would specifically target members of the community who were suspected drug dealers as well as try to remove people who were occupying government infrastructure unlawfully.

The organisation's mandate has since expanded and illegal foreigners have now been added to the "clean up" list. In February 2022, Operation Dudula branched off to Hillbrow, in Johannesburg and made the call for all foreign nationals to leave South Africa if they are undocumented.
