ancEWN reports that that the African National Congress (ANC) wants government to consider imposing quotas of the number of foreign nationals that companies in different sectors can employ.  

The party’s national executive committee (NEC) decided in its lekgotla over the weekend that local people should not be losing jobs to foreign nationals.  The NEC’s proposal is that companies in different sectors should be given ratios of the number of foreign people they can hire.  ANC secretary-general Gwede Mantashe commented:  "If you go to a restaurant today, you are likely to be served by a waiter is not South African."
