    Parliament welcomes the progress made in eliminating the backlog of appeals for asylum seekers

    The Portfolio Committee on Internal Affairs has welcomed the progress in clearing the backlog of asylum seeker appeals, which currently stands at 133,582.

    The committee is hopeful that the project partnership agreement between the Department of Internal Affairs, through the Refugee Appeals Authority of South Africa (RAASA) and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, will meet their intended goals and that the RAASA will experience no further delays.

    “Removing the backlog of asylum seekers will go a long way towards ensuring the rights of those who are truly in need of protection in South Africa.

    Furthermore, it will strengthen South Africa's position in promoting and supporting human rights as advocated by the United Nations,” said Mr. Mosa Chabane, Chairman of the committee.

    The committee appreciates the assurance that the four-year project partnership agreement at an estimated cost of R146 784 million will provide the necessary capacity support that RAASA needs to clear the backlog.

    While the committee acknowledges that the number of appeals decided since the project was launched remains low, with 450 decisions made and 284 incomplete files returned to DHA, it is hopeful that the appointment of the new RAASA chair will help greatly to promote the project.

    The committee welcomed the digitization of all records to improve the adjudication process and reduce the possibility of loss of records.

    The committee has urged full digitization to ensure speedy processing and streamlined processes.

    In the meantime, the committee welcomes the full reopening of refugee reception offices across the country, with the exception of the Cape Town office which is only awaiting the completion of the new office.

    The committee also called for the continuation of online extensions to reduce the volume of clients visiting offices in person.

    Meanwhile, the committee received a presentation from the Congolese Civil Society of South Africa on various issues affecting refugees and those seeking refuge in South Africa.

    The committee has resolved to raise some of those concerns with the Department of the Interior and, after receiving concrete responses from DHA, will engage with the civil society group.

    South Africa: Home Affairs Committee welcomes Consequence Management by Department Directorate against Corrupt Officials

    The Internal Affairs Portfolio Committee has welcomed the acceleration of consequence management by Internal Affairs Department management against corrupt officials within the department.

    The committee sees it as a critical and effective move to root out fraud and corruption within the department.

    “It is unfortunate that the majority of cases against department officials are related to the fraudulent issuance of passports.

    But we are confident that the department is doing everything in its power and authority to bring the culprits to justice.

    The committee has given its full support to the department in its effort to cleanse itself of some bad apples within its ranks,” said Mr. Mosa Chabane, chairman of the committee.

    The committee also welcomed the reprogramming of the information technology system to incorporate security features with clear information about which officials have logged into the system and which areas of the system they are working on.

    In addition, the committee has called for an early conclusion of all pending cases to allow for the full provision of services.

    Regarding the matter of Prophet Shepherd Bhushiri, the committee took note of the internal disciplinary measures implemented by the department.

    He has urged the department to move quickly to finalize all of its processes to allow implementation of consequence management that will serve as a deterrent against officials who might be tempted to act illegally.

    The committee remains concerned that the issue of the full investigation into how Prophet Bushiri escaped has not been concluded and has resolved to involve other relevant parliamentary committees and all relevant government departments to get to the bottom of the matter.

    In the meantime, the committee has taken note of the process being undertaken by the department in relation to the Zimbabwe Exemption Permit and will be monitoring the conclusion of court cases regarding these permits.

    The committee also welcomed the extension of Zimbabwean waivers granted to Zimbabwean nationals for an additional six months to enable holders of such waivers to apply for one or another visa under the Immigration Act for which they may qualify.
