Joburg mayor Herman Mashaba highlighted problems the city has been faced with, including issues that put immigrants at risk.

Outgoing Joburg mayor Herman Mashaba, supported by his Ekurhuleni counterpart Mzwandile Masina and the South African Local Government Association, has appeared before a joint committee of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs and Home Affairs in a plea to have MPs assist the city with illegal immigration-related problems.

Mashaba highlighted a number of problems the city has been faced with including issues that put migrants at risk.

Sharing an update on the meeting, Home Affairs Committee chairperson Advocate Bongani Bongo says the issues do not only affect the City of Johannesburg.

He admits that interventions such as the Border Management Bill are already underway.

We are looking at this challenge, as a big challenge that is affecting the entire country. What we encouraged is that municipalities deal with their bylaws in a more efficient way and the department has come to the party.

Advocate Bongani Bongo, Chairperson - Home Affairs Committee

We have a problem with the porous borders and part of what we have put in as Parliament and the executive was that the border management authority bill be quickly finalised...

Advocate Bongani Bongo, Chairperson - Home Affairs Committee

Mayor Herman Mashaba, I think he is happy with the meeting. We have agreed with the department that they will give us specific answers in a specified timeframe so that we are able to oversight properly.
