Gigaba has issued instructions to his department to compile and submit a comprehensive report and strategy on managing long queues at Home Affairs offices.

“There was a long queue when we arrived here (Orlando West) and we were able to deal with it… it’s a question of leadership. The management of the department on the ground is something that we have to pay attention to.”
Gigaba has asked South Africans to exercise patience, adding that the sudden rush to Home Affairs offices may have been sparked by false reports about the green ID being phased out.
It seems the Minister's days of playing games during Parliamentary sessions are behind him.
