Botswana tells its farmers not to hire Zimbabweans

Botswana had told its farmers not to hire “cheap” Zimbabweans and has instead asked them to pay better wages to attract locals. According to the Botswana daily, Mmegi, the farmers had asked Home Affairs Minister Edwin Batshu to relax labour laws that prohibit the employment of Zimbabweans on farms but he rejected their request. “What will happen if the Zimbabwe economy improves at the time when Batswana are relying on their cheap labour in their farms?” Batshu asked. “Batswana are very choosy and this has seriously delayed their progress in life. Farm owners must also pay farm workers well so that they can attract Batswana to work in their farms. The employer and employee need each other.”
