Court Slams DHA Treatment of Refugees

The high court had harsh words for the department of home affairs because it took seven years to finalise an asylum application by a Congolese national who fled persecution in his homeland.

The court described as ‘deplorable’ the treatment of Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) citizen, Christian Bolanga, who fled to South Africa in 2005.

Acting Judge Guido Penzhorn declared that Bolanga is a refugee entitled to asylum and ordered Minister of Home Affairs, Malusi Gigaba, to issue to Bolanga a written recognition of refugee status within 10 days.
