MEDIA STATEMENT ON THE ARREST OF HOME AFFAIRS OFFICIALS

The Department of Home Affairs has noted the arrest of its officials at the Beitbridge Port of Entry in Musina by the Directorate for Priority Crimes (DPCI) on Thursday, 26 May 2016.

Four Home Affairs officials were apprehended during the operation on charges relating to fraud and corruption.

Minister Malusi Gigaba launched Operation Bvisa Masina to clear the rot from the organization and the collaborative effort between Home Affairs and the South African Police Service (SAPS) has resulted in the arrest of 46 individuals, including 28 from the department.

Minister Gigaba hailed today’s arrests as significant in demonstrating the vigour with which those who embark on fraud and corruption practices will be pursued.

Said Minister Gigaba:

“We have maintained that we will spare no efforts in our pursuit of those rogue individuals in our midst who continue to undermine our determination to provide efficient services to our clients. Today’s arrests will send a strong message of our zero tolerance stance towards crime in all its manifestations.” Ends
