Mr Aaron Motsoaledi who happens to be the Home Affairs Minister has reiterated that there are processes underway to establish with proposed laws that would limit the number of foreigners South African Industries can employ.
Motsoaledi stated that Home Affairs and other necessary government bodies will do this with the assistance and advice from global institutions like the International Labour Organisation.
The Minister made this statement during a conversation with Inkatha Freedom Party MP, Liezl van der Merwe at a Ministerial Peace and Security Cluster oral reply session in the National Assembly.
Motsoaledi also confirmed that an Inter-Ministerial Task committee had already drawn advice from different bodies.
According to his statement:
“We have already approached International Labour Organisation to help us. One of them is to help us provide a Bill that will provide quotas of the number of foreign nationals that can be hired by Industry.”
“ We need a lot of advice because our constitution is open to many things and we don’t want to be found on the wrong side of the law. The Inter-Ministerial Committee reported to the cabinet committee on Trade and Industry because some of the issues will affect trade,” Motsoaledi stated.
You would recall that the South African government last month, promised to crack down on employers who hire foreign truck drivers instead of South Africans in order to circumvent the country’s labour laws.
