​Asylum Seeks Allege SA Secretly Deport Them

Asylum seekers The Citizen spoke to say it seems to be up to your luck if you get asked to go to the ‘deportation room’.

According to two Malawian brothers who have been living in South Africa for more than 10 years, the Department of Home Affairs is ‘randomly deporting’ Malawians and Zimbabweans, and perhaps people of other nationalities too.

Andy (not his real name), a qualified electrical technician, who  is now living in South Africa as an undocumented migrant, says he will rather take his chances with getting arrested.

​Basotho Nationals Will Not be Deported

Home Affairs Minister, Malusi Gigaba, says Lesotho nationals living in South Africa without the right documents will no longer be deported from now until 31 December 2016.
 
Speaking on Morning Live, the minister says only those who were employed prior to the announcement of this Lesotho Special Permit (LSP) can apply for these new permits.
 
The Lesotho Special Permit (LSP) will help Basotho to regularise their stay in South Africa and applications for this new permit will be conducted at selected Home Affairs centres in nine provinces across the country.
