SA Kicks 43,000 Zimbabweans Out in 12 Months

South Africa has deported almost 43,000 Zimbabweans in the last 12 months.

The figure is actually 42 940.

South Africa resumed the deportations of Zimbabwean illegal immigrants last year in October after having initially suspended the exercise in April 2009.

The highest number deported in June when 4 460 were deported. The least was last month with  2 967 kicked out.

Our guess is that half of all those are back in that country.

Just for good measure, Zimbabwe deported South African musician Lundi on Thursday. He is supposed to have a show on Saturday.
