SA Government Says It Is Not Working With Operation Dudula

South Africa’s Home Affairs Minister Aaron Motsoaledi has denied they work with Operation Dudula, an anti-immigrant vigilante-like group that is targetting illegal foreign nationals in that country.

Motsoaledi said South Africa’s Government applies immigration laws when they deport or remove illegal foreign nationals from the country.

He made the comments while responding to IFP MP Liezl van der Merwe, who, in a written question in Parliament, had asked whether the Home Affairs Department was working with Operation Dudula. Said Motsoaledi:

The department does not condone any illegal activities. The activities of Operation Dudula of identifying and forcefully removing alleged illegal foreign nationals in identified communities is not a programme of the department.

The Department of Home Affairs, through its Inspectorate, has the legal mandate to ensure that all persons in South Africa are lawfully permitted to be here.

The inspectorate does regular inspections and conducts investigations to detect those who may be here unlawfully.

Multi-disciplinary operations with the South African Police Services and Metropolitan Police, including inspections of businesses, is a key source of the detection of illegal foreign nationals, their arrest and deportation.

Operation Dudula has launched provincial chapters in recent times. Last week, it launched in the North West province.

I want to thank MP Van der Merwe for exposing Home ffairs Minister Aaron Motsoaledi . He is actually working with DUBULA. How can an outlawed vigilante form Provincial Structures in an independent country like South Africa without being detected and arrested ? Minister Aaron Motsoaledi's speeches in Parliament and other fora indicate that he sponsors Dudula. He has the National Police Force and Metropolitan Police at his disposal instead of allowing Dubula to kill people. Old People's Home government is mum because it is not keen that diasporans come back home to vote. It suspects that they will vote for opposition. No matter how much Minister Aaron Motsoaledi may want to distance himself from Dubula, he has already shown that he is the leader of vigilante Dubula.
