The Minister said this when briefing journalists in response to media reports that the ruling party was looking at deliberating on whether to review dual citizenship at its upcoming National General Council.
“From the point of view of government, there is absolutely no reviews of the Citizenship Act no plans to review it.
“I must emphasise that there would never be a time where we take an arbitrary decision on these issues. We will always be guided by the Constitution and what is in the best interest of our country and our people,” he said.
According to media reports, the issue of reviewing dual citizenship was discussed at the ruling party’s July Lekgotla where some members of the ANC raised concerns on whether the policy needed to be reviewed to stop South African citizens from taking up arms for other countries that are at war with SA’s allies.
