SA Citizens Recruited and Paid R5000 to Provide their Fingerprint Used in Producing Fake Passport.

The rate at which corruption is recorded in South Africa recently is quite disheartening and this issues has continued to eat deep into our society despite all the measures being put in place to curtail it.

For sometime now, we have been complaining about the uncontrollable influx of illegal foreign nationals into our country. However it has become clear that some Home Affairs officials aid in smuggling these falsely documented individuals into our nation.

In an emerging report, a foreign national from Bangladesh who bears the name Kheswa Sifiso on his fake passport has landed in police custody after evidence revealed that he obtained a South African passport illegally.

Some Home Affairs officials were also arrested for colluding with illegal immigrants to provide them with South African passports. In one of the revelation made by the officials, it was revealed that local South Africans are recruited and paid a whopping R5000 rand to avail their personal information and fingerprints for this criminal purpose.

This was contained in a statement issued by Crime In SA on Twitter and it reads:

"Foreign Nationals and Home Affairs officials arrested for colluding in Fraud and Corruption. Foreign Nationals were using personal details of RSA citizens to get RSA passports. SA citizens were recruited and allegedly paid R5000 in order to use their fingerprints and details".
