DA Leader John Steenhuisen Visits A Home Affairs Branch In Johannesburg


People expressed issues like as corruption and paying bribes for faster services to Democratic Alliance (DA) representatives during a site visit to the home affairs office in Johannesburg on Wednesday.
Solly Msimanga of the Democratic Alliance (DA) said the party would write to Home Affairs Minister Aaron Motsoaledi about claims of corruption and ill-treatment of workers at various departments.
The DA, led by John Steenhuisen, paid a visit to the Johannesburg branch of the Department of Home Affairs, where they encountered several persons waiting in long lines.
During the tour, Msimanga and Steenhuisen learned about people’s hardships and problems obtaining documents such as identification, birth certificates, and death certificates.
Busisiwe Matiwane, who was accompanying her two children to seek for ID documents, was one of many waiting. She said she was unable to obtain assistance because she had not paid at least R300 for expedited service.
“I don’t have R150 or R300; if you arrive after 11 a.m., you’ll be told to pay R300 to gain access.”
Home affairs, according to Msimanga, is the country’s most handicapped department
