Giyani- The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) from Giyani in ward 12 will on Friday 30th of November 2018 march to the Department of Home Affairs local offices in Giyani Section A.

The march will start at 10am from Evuxakeni to the Department of Home Affairs office.


Speaking to The Only Informer in Town, on Monday, Ward12 co-ordinator Austin Mabasa said they will be marching against the Department’s decision to deny hundreds of pupils from Giyani High and Risinga High school Identity Documents (IDs).

“These pupils in the past years completed their Grade 12s with Bachelors but since they’re still undocumented, it bars them to study further in their universities of choice.

“And we will be engaging the department on the issue, as to why citizens who have stayed for more than 5 years in South Africa, still have their IDs which end with 81 meaning that they’re not yet recognised as lawful citizens.”  concluded Mabasa.
