Operation Dudula plans to officially launch the movement in KwaZulu-Natal with a planned march on Sunday in Durban. TimesLIVE reported that members of the movement are set to march to the Department of Home Affairs and deliver a memorandum at the Point police station in Durban.

EThekwini Metro police spokesperson Parboo Sewpersad said the march has not yet been approved.

South Africans have mixed reactions to the movement

@Tempo_rsa said:

“What Dudula is doing is actually bringing all government’s baggage back to its doorstep without burning anything, something that is foreign in our country, we all expected it but never thought it will come out this way. So far, they are winning, like it or not.”

@ThemillonthePo commented:

“Regardless. It's an important step to debunk false propaganda that aims to diminish Dudula as a "vigilante type" movement.”

@WilsonMoira posted:

“Must say I’m starting to respect Operation Dudula. Doing the Home Affairs and SAPS jobs for them.”

@MabuMonyela shared:

“Our people are squeezed in shacks sharing toilets, while we have a lot of hijacked buildings. Will the public protector protect her people?”

@CruzJochi added:

“Wow! Malema is right! This idiot is mimicking @Julius_S_Malema ! He is hijacking Malema’s very words and actions! May God save us from fools!”

“People who are here illegally have to be dealt with within the framework of the law.”
