  • Home Affairs sent packing for now as immigration law challenge still looms

    Two foreigners married to South Africans can remain in the country with their families for now after the Constitutional Court told the Department of Home Affairs it cannot appeal a temporary High Court order. The court ruled on Tuesday on the department's application for leave to appeal a Western Cape High Court decision granting temporary relief to two families separated by a new immigration regulation that came into effect at the end of May last year. The foreign spouses of Brent Johnson and Cherene Delorie were stranded outside South Africa after being refused re-entry and declared "undesirable". Delorie’s Zimbabwean husband, David Henderson, was declared an undesirable person after leaving South Africa - where he has lived for seven years - to travel to Zimbabwe on May 28 last year, while Johnson’s Danish wife, Louise Egedal-Johnson, was declared an undesirable person after a family holiday to Namibia the same month.

A month after telling Swazis in Swaziland that they should not engage in industrial action, he has come out to declare that all foreigners should be deported from South Africa. This shocking declaration comes from a man who has in his harem two foreign nationals from Swaziland who live on South Africans' taxes. As if that was not enough hypocrisy, Zwelithini's son Mandlesizwe Zulu is actually an employee of the Swazi army.
