Steven Anderson has right to appeal Home Affairs decision - legal expert

Immigration lawyer, Craig Smith, says the Department of Home Affairs is entitled to ban Pastor Steven Anderson from entering South Africa after his homophobic comments.

Smith explains what South Africa's Immigration Law entails and analyses the decision made by Home Affairs.

The department can determine a balance between individual liberty and right to national security and the interest of the citizens in the country. In this instance they have pronounced on behalf of citizens.

What Home Affairs are obliged to do is address the pastor in writing giving written reasons why they consider him to be a prohibited person based on particular evidence, then this particular pastor has every right to appeal the decision.

That would be appealed to the director general, if he dismisses the appeal, it can then go to the minister.
