Political actors in South Africa have called on President Cyril Ramaphosa to take a tough stance in dealing with the Zimbabwean crisis.

Former DA leader Mmusi Maimane has told Ramaphosa to stop being soft on the Zimbabwean government

“We cannot be soft on the Zimbabwean issue @CyrilRamaphosa, any delegation must call for the release of journalists and political activists who have been detained on spurious charges. The civil and political rights of citizens must be respected. Abductions must end” said Maimane.

The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) of Julius Malema has been very vocal and advocating for the closure of the N1 highway and Beitbridge Border Post which connects Zimbabwe to South Africa.

Malema says these needs to be shut down until Zimbabwe fixes its domestic issues.

Maimane has been very vocal about the Zimbabwean situation and South African intervention.

Former DA Johannesburg Mayor Herman Mashaba who’s now a leader of a new opposition political party has also called on tough action against Zanu PF leaders in South Africa.

Mashaba is of the view that all assets in South Africa belonging to Zanu PF leaders should be frozen until the issues in Zimbabwe are fixed.

Mashaba says the government of South Africa must work towards making ot hard for Zimbabwean leaders to do business in South Africa until they put their house back in order.

Meanwhile Ramaphosa has once again sent his special envoy back to Zimbabwe this time around with a command to meet all stakeholders including civil Organizations and opposition leaders.
