The QoL 2011 survey asked respondents what the two biggest problems were in their community. Only 2.3% of respondents identified ‘foreigners’ as one of the two biggest problems, with less than 1% naming ‘foreigners’ in their first mention. This seemingly heartening situation is belied by responses to a question examining respondents’ attitudes to the presence of foreigners in Gauteng.
Disturbingly, almost a third of respondents (32%) said that Gauteng is for South Africans only and foreigners should be sent back to their own countries. Almost half (47%) said that those who are in the country legally should be able to stay (although it is unclear how many they thought this would be since no figures were provided), while 21% said that foreigners should be allowed to stay.
