The department of Home Affairs is working tirelessly to ensure that issues of immigration raising concerns among South Africans are appropriately addressed. Especially in the aspect of corruption which has eaten deep into the activities of officials in the department.
You would recall that recently, the Home Affairs commission uncovered some officials who are sabotaging our government's effort to deal with falsification of South African documents.
In a bid to further deliver to the people of South Africa as well as improve transparency in the department, the Home Affairs has concluded plans to recruit additional 764 employees to push the department staffing level to 42 percent.
517 out of the new recruit will serve as front office staff while the remaining 288 will serve as immigration officers.
The department also revealed that the government had already disbursed R266 to them which will help in increasing the number of Home Affairs staff.
This is a welcome development and we hope to see more service delivery in the department unlike what is obtainable in the department today.
This was contained in a statement released by Home Affairs via its official Twitter handle:
"Minister Motsoaledi: We have been awarded R266 million which will help push our staffing level to at least 42% by hiring an additional 764 employees. 517 of this employees will be front office staff and 288 will be new immigration officers".
