The Cabinet has resolved that migrant Zimbabwean nationals living in South Africa be given another opportunity to apply for work permits to extend their stay, according to a report on the IoL site. ‘Cabinet approved that the department of home affairs can reopen the re-application process for the current Zimbabwe Special Permit (ZSP) holders, under certain conditions,’ Communications Minister Ayanda Dlodlo is quoted in the report as saying. ‘The initial special dispensation for Zimbabweans was approved in April 2009 to document Zimbabwean nationals who were in South Africa illegally. Their permits expire on December 31, 2017. The Minister of Home Affairs, Prof Hlengiwe Mkhize will hold a separate briefing to explain the conditions and the process to be followed once the re-application opens.’
