Immigration Laws for Foreigners Should be Tightened

14 March 2013        

The arrest of seven people, some of whom are said to be foreigners, who were allegedly running a drug manufacturing syndicate in Edenvale is a clear indication that the Department of Home Affairs needs to tighten up on our immigration laws. 

IFP Spokesperson on Police, Mr Velaphi Ndlovu MP said, "Foreigners who come to South Africa should remember that they are expected to contribute to the growth of our country whilst making better lives for themselves. Selling drugs is an illegal activity that breaks down the very fabric of our society and it will not be tolerated. Such criminals will face the full might of our law." 

The IFP would like to congratulate the police for their excellent detective work in this matter.
