October 19 2017 – DA Johannesburg Mayor Herman Mashaba has taken his war against illegal immigrants, by instituting a High Court application against newly appointed SA Home Affairs Minister, Ayandla Dlodlo, next week to have them deported from Johannesburg City.
The removal of so-called illegal migrants in Johannesburg forms part of Mashaba’s cleanup process, which involves renewing the CBD and recovering city-owned buildings.
Mashaba has requested that the home affairs department regulate immigration, but decided to take the matter to court, as he was out of options.
Speaking to EWN, he said: “We’re under chaos now. People are running all over the show with no documentation, so I want to bring back the rule of law. Four to five months down the line, I’m going to have an issue, so I’m dealing with this up front.” – Citizen
