The Zimbabwe Exiles Forum has warned that the 31 December deadline of documenting Zimbabweans in South Africa is ‘unrealistic’.
The organisation’s lawyer and director, Gabriel Shumba, points out that the major problem with that deadline is that there are thousands of Zimbabweans who do not have passports.
In the same vein, Tara Polzer from the University of the Witwatersrand’s Forced Migration Studies Programme, argues that, “That is one of the biggest hurdles for this whole process. It’s actually quite concerning if the institutions involved are going into it without recognising that as a real hurdle.”
