Home Affairs vows to crackdown on corruption
The Department of Home Affairs has vowed to crack down on corruption following the arrest of four officials in the Western Cape last week. The four, who were based at the Refugee Reception office in Cape Town, were arrested for allegedly assisting and facilitating the illegal stay of Egyptians in the country. Acting Director of Communications, Mantshele Tau, says the arrests follow an intensive two-year operation. Earlier this month two officials based in the Vaal Triangle were also arrested on charges of corruption along with about 33 illegal Egyptians. Tau said the guilty parties would face the full force of the law.
