ZEP: African Aminity and Zim Permit Holders Association Withdraw Legal Case Against Home Affairs.

The Zimbabwe exemption permit, which was last renewed in 2018 and gives its holders the right to live and work in South Africa for a period of four years, is being phased out one step at a time as the Department of Home Affairs makes slow but steady headway toward its goal of eliminating it entirely.

Since the permit was no longer valid as of the 31st of December in 2021, numerous organizations from all over the country as well as from outside the country have initiated legal proceedings against the Department of Home Affairs in an effort to compel Minister Aaron Motsoaledi to reverse the decision.

African Aminity, the NPC, and the Zimbabwe Permit Holders Association are just some of the organizations that have taken the Ministry of Home Affairs to court. On the other hand, these three organizations have decided to withdraw all of the complaints that they had previously brought against Home Affairs.

This information was disclosed in a report that was published by the Department of Home Affairs on its website, where it said that

"The Department of Home Affairs is pleased to announce that on June 14, 2022, African Amity NPC and the Zimbabwe Permit Holders Association withdrew their application that had been submitted to the court in relation to case number 51735/21.

The case was a challenge brought before the court against a decision made by the Minister of Home Affairs not to prolong exemptions that had previously been given to Zimbabwean nationals.

The Department of Defense is relieved that, at long last, common sense appears to have won out. As was mentioned earlier, the Department is always available for positive engagement with the Zimbabwean nationals who have been negatively impacted ".
