AFRIFORUM LAUNCHES BOARD GUARD INITIATIVE

AfriForum has been lauded for its initiative with hopes that the uncontrolled influx of illegal immigrants will decrease. 

“AfriForum’s neighbourhood watch members are helping in the area to keep the community safe.

“The first action of the initiative is the donation of two sniffer dogs to AfriForum’s Musina neighbourhood watch. Both dogs (Duke and Hailey) have been trained to cut and Duke is specifically trained to sniff out guns and drugs.”

Home Affairs Minister, Dr Aaron Motsoaledi has been at the forefront in the fight to secure South Africa’s borders as well various other groups such as “anti-illegal immigrant” group Operation Dudula. 

Motsoaledi previously said that illegal migration is a global problem that many countries are facing. He also said that the Government is unaware of the exact number of illegal foreign nationals in SA and this can be attributed to the way in which illegal foreign nationals come into SA. 

“The RSA government does not have a precise number of undocumented immigrants in the Republic, due to the clandestine nature of the act of being here illegally.”
