The purpose of this article is to look at both the social and the economic impact made by the Zimbabweans living in the Polokwane Municipality of the Limpopo Province. Migration has recently been a critical debate in a national, regional and international context, hence requiring international intervention for the protection of refugees and an intervention binding all countries. The locals and the immigrants have negative attitudes towards each other and conflicts occur between them at various levels. Competition for scarce resources features highly in such conflict agendas. Many argue that illegal immigrants are economic burdens to countries and are responsible for their failure to address their country's domestic problems.
