The ANC NEC has received recommendations that the number of foreigners working in South African companies should be limited.

City Press newspaper revealed that the recommendation was made by an ANC commission that includes Chair, Tony Yengeni, Nosiviwe Maphisa Nqakula, Ronald Lamola and Bheki Cele.

The commission recommended that the employment of foreigners should be regulated to ensure that South Africans can participate in the economy. The committee highlighted that there are too many foreign Uber drivers and restaurants workers.

The commission endorsed the Border Management Authority Act, which was signed into law by Ramaphosa in July. The law will be used to effectively track people who frequent South Africa.

South Africa has an estimated 7.2% of the population who are foreign nationals. However, COSATU President, Zingiswa Losi says the backlash against foreigners only applied to black foreigners and he joined EFF President, Julius Malema in condemning the ANC’s recommendations.
