Wednesday, November 14, 2018

The chairperson of the Portfolio Committee on Home Affairs, Hlomani Chauke, says he has noted the resignation of Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba.

Gigaba handed his resignation letter to President Cyril Ramaphosa on Tuesday.

According to Chauke, the committee acknowledges the selfless and principled decision taken by the Minister to resign following damning findings by the Public Protector and the Constitutional court.

"We would like to thank the Minister for his many years of service to this committee and for the initiatives he had implemented in trying to make the Department of Home Affairs a people centred department," Chauke said.

Chauke said the committee will await the announcement of the new executive authority for the department and commit to cooperatively continue to work with the new Minister to ensure quality services to the people of South Africa and foreign nationals visiting the country. –
