Making headlines:

Home affairs prioritising immigration policy


Judgment expected in Ntlemeza's application to interdict Mbalula

And, documents going missing at SABC



Home affairs had made improving South Africa's international migration policy a priority, Minister Hlengiwe Mkhize said during her department’s budget vote debate in Parliament yesterday.

She said the white paper which was approved by cabinet in March replaced a 1999 version which did not address globalisation, migration and priorities set out in the “National Development Plan, Vision 2030”.

DA MP Haniff Hoosen praised the department for the rollout of six-million smart ID cards in four years and the quick turnaround times for passport applications even though South Africa's immigration system was broken.


The North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria is expected to hand down judgment in an application by former Hawks boss Major-General Berning Ntlemeza to interdict Police Minister Fikile Mbalula today.

In March, the court found that then police minister Nathi Nhleko had ignored two court judgments, which found that Ntlemeza lacked integrity and honesty when he appointed him head of the elite police unit.

Yesterday, Ntlemeza's lawyers argued that his application to interdict Mbalula was urgent, as the minister's actions were illegal.


Communications Minister Ayanda Dlodlo has struggled to get information about the South African Broadcasting Corporation's finances out of the broadcaster. 

She told Parliament's standing committee on public accounts on Wednesday that there were "skill problems" when it came to getting answers and documents from the office of the SABC's CFO.

She then added that in one of her first meetings with the SABC the public broadcaster's dire financial state was not brought to her and the interim board's attention. 

Dlodlo said she did not want to act from the premise that documents disappeared "because people are inherently criminal".
