JOHANNESBURG – The Border Management Authority (BMA) was launched at the Beitbridge border post to secure the country from undocumented foreign nationals.
The Minister of Home Affairs Dr Aaron Motsoaledi launched the unit and said its mandate is to prevent people from entering South Africa illegally. eNCA reported that he said the unit is registered as an armed statutory force in terms of the law.
Motsoaledi said if fighting against people who break the laws of the country is considered xenophobic, then he should be “counted” in. The BMA will take over the responsibility of securing the borders from police and soldiers that have been failing to meet its mandate.
According to CapricornFM News, the unit was created to strengthen the security at the border. Motsoaledi added that the members would be subject to regular checks. The BMA unit also took an oath not to take bribes.
