The Department of Home Affairs has advised citizens that their offices will remain closed this Saturday, 15 July 2017.
Home Affairs Minister Hlengiwe Mkhize has apologised and appealed to members of the public to be patient while the department is working on resolving the matter as quickly as possible.
Negotiations are underway to resolve the impasse regarding Saturday operations at Home Affairs offices.
The department and unions have been locked in talks to find a solution to the labour dispute, which has led to the suspension of operations at Home Affairs offices countrywide on Saturdays.
