SA Must Legalise Zimbabweans – MDC

Zimbabweans had used these illegal IDs to receive property loans, register for schooling, open businesses and apply for government tenders, local secretary Ngqabutho Dube told reporters.
“Given the above, we are of the view that these Zimbabweans should be granted South African citizen status. It would be easier to deal with the above issues.”
 
Recently the home affairs department announced it would provide an amnesty for Zimbabweans who had been using illegal South African ID books, and “normalise” their status as Zimbabwean immigrants.
However, Dube said this would impose administrative difficulties these Zimbabweans would then need to restart their lives under new identities. – Sapa
