He says while there is much more to do, he is proud of the progress made during his tenure.

It has not been an easy route but I think there is progress which one can say he is proud of. We are still not at the top of the mountain, but the team we are leaving behind, I think they will be able to take the baton and move forward.

Mkuseli Apleni, Home Affairs DG

As long as staff members buy in on that vision - to say you cannot get Home Affairs services anywhere, therefore the way we treat customers, we have to go to all levels to try and assist.

Mkuseli Apleni, Home Affairs DG

We are an ethical department. We were not in an environment where we were compromised on issues of governance.
