Further Notice To All Zimbabweans Granted Exemption For Zim Work Permits

Zimbabweans might be busy taking the SA government to court for not renewing their Zim Work Permits, but they should also make sure their documents are in order because the minister of home affairs' decision is final, whether or not they go to court. A group of Zimbabweans who came to South Africa illegally to escape their government, which they were supposed to fight head-on, can't make South Africans do things that even the people of this country don't do.

We know that Zimbabweans might be happy that the cabinet changed its mind about not renewing the Zim Work Permits, but we also know that the minister of home affairs is in charge. Even the papers for the minister of home affairs show that the cabinet never agreed to this, and now we hear that Zimbabweans are not happy about this from their lawyer Simba Chitando.

More information for all Zimbabweans who have been exempted under section 31(2)(b) of the immigration act 13 of 2002. Those who are affected by this can reapply for one of the other visas the immigration act allows.

So far, the department of home affairs has received a few applications, such as waiver requests, which are being carefully looked at. We know that this affects about 250,000 Zimbabweans, and the fact that only a small number of them have tried to reapply for visas shows that they don't care much about South African law. This could also mean that the rest of them are counting on Simba Chitando's court case, which might take longer than they thought.
