• New SA visa regulations have airlines in a frenzy

    International airline Virgin Atlantic says it expects to have to turn some foreign passengers away at airports when new regulations come in on Monday, and that airlines are going to suffer financially as a result. From next week, people travelling in and out of South Africa will be required to have unabridged birth certificates for the children travelling with them, and to have affidavits from parents if they're not with the children. The travel industry has strongly criticised the plans, but Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba has promised they will be implemented this time around. Virgin Atlantic country manager Liezl Gericke says they're still battling to explain these rules to international markets.

  • Protecting or targeting migrants?

    THE raids and subsequent detention of an estimated 400 migrants and refugees at the Central Methodist Church in Johannesburg earlier this month raised questions about the real reasons for the deployment of the army to so-called "xenophobic hot spots". The South African National Defence Force’s (SANDF’s) joint operations with the South African Police Service (SAPS) and the Department of Home Affairs was originally touted by politicians as a means to shield vulnerable immigrants from the spate of xenophobic attacks that left seven foreign nationals dead.

    In what can only be described as a James Bond 007-like rescue operation, Western Cape Premier Helen Zille and her journalist accomplice saved two German tourists, from sleeping on the streets of Cape Town. The rescue mission started off with Netwerk24 reporter, Marelize Barnard, offering to assist the two lost German tourists in a supermarket in Buitengracht street after dark on Friday 22 May. The tourists, Mr Lee and Mrs Kim, were not only completely lost in translation - since they did not speak a word of English - but also completely lost, geographically speaking. After attempting to find their mystery hotel by driving to various popular hotels in the vicinity, Barnard decided to call for backup. Barnard, who speaks no German, frantically scrolled through her contact list on her cellphone in search of someone with at least some comprehension of the German language.

  • South Africa: The Brazilian Who Thinks White South Africans Should Get Asylum in the EU Because Ethnic Cleansing

    More than 25,000 people have supported a Change.org petition for the European Union to allow white South Africans citizenship in Europe, because white people could die from ethnic cleansing in South Africa at any moment. The man who started the petition is Rodrigo de Campos - who is based in Brazil, but concerned for the well-being of white people in South Africa, Namibia and Zimbabwe. "Many white South Africans today live in poverty and squalor as a consequence of the ANC government's Black Economic Empowerment," de Campos said his petition, which alleged that more than 4,000 white farmers had been slain in the country, a claim that has been thoroughly debunked by Africa Check. De Campos - who blames the Economic Freedom Fighters, the African National Congress and mysterious "individual anti-white aggressors" for the alleged deadly circumstances white South Africans find themselves in - wrote that his philosophy to return white people to their European motherlands was inspired by Israel's policy to allow Jewish people the right of return to Israel.
