Further Notice To All Zimbabweans Granted Exemption For Zim Work Permits

Aside from bringing the South African government to court for not renewing their Zim Work Permits, Zimbabweans need to ensure that their document is in order because the minister of home affairs' decision is final, whether or not they take the government to court. No one can hold the South Africans in contempt because of those Zimbabweans who came here illegally in order to escape the government they were supposed to confront straight on, but who are now making demands that even South Africans are unable to meet. 

Zim Work Permits have been reinstated by the Zimbabwean Cabinet, but the Minister of Home Affairs has the final say on whether or not they will be renewed. This is something that Zimbabweans, according to their lawyer Simba Chitando, are not happy about, as can be seen in the paperwork for the minister of home affairs. 

Section 31(2)(b) of the Immigration Act 13 of 2002, which grants exemptions to Zimbabwean nationals, has been updated. There are several alternative visas available in case something happens to you in the future. 

Only a few applications have come in thus far, including waiver petitions, which are being thoroughly reviewed. This has affected an estimated 250 000 Zimbabweans, and the fact that so few of them have attempted to reapply for visas proves that they do not respect South African law. If Simba Chitando's judicial process takes longer than planned, this could indicate that the rest of them are relying on it.
