TOP ZIMBA MANAGER RUMBLED, DEPORTED FROM SA


A Zimbabwean who was a senior manager at a municipality in South Africa has been deported after he was rumbled as an illegal immigrant.

Minister of home affairs Aaron Motsoaledi's spokesperson Siya Qoza has confirmed that Zivanai Katikiti, a manager for financial control and reporting at the Rand West City municipality in Gauteng, was arrested and forced out of the country.

Katikiti was arrested by Home Affairs immigration officials last week for contravening immigration laws in several respects.

He appeared in court last Friday and remained in custody until the confirmation of his deportation in court on Tuesday.

The department said Katikiti was deported to Zimbabwe through the Beitbridge Port of Entry in the afternoon of Wednesday, 9 September 2020.

“The Department of Home Affairs’ records show that Katikiti entered South Africa in May 2015 and had not applied for a work or residence permit. Katikiti is a prohibited person, who was found in possession of a fraudulent permit and other documents,” the department said in a statement on Thursday.
