Study warns against termination of ZEP system

A new study by the Centre for Sociological Research and Practice at the University of Johannesburg argues that the South African government’s attempt to terminate the ZEP system holds dire consequences for both SA and the broader region. Zimbabweans surveyed during the research reported a marked rise in xenophobia in recent years, with authorities seldom missing a chance to single out foreigners as the source of crime and other ills in SA.
