Apleni said the success of the interventions would hinge on people travelling gradually over the entire Easter period.

He said the interventions had the support of stakeholders, including religious leaders and pilgrims, particularly those heading for Moria, in Limpopo, and neighbouring countries.

“On behalf of the ministry and department of home affairs I would like to inform citizens, and other clients, that we are ready to receive all travellers in and out of South Africa, and we will do so with the highest levels of professionalism and efficiency,” said Apleni.

“We have appealed to all our officials, especially those at ports of entry, to do all in their power to deliver the most humane and high-quality service to all people. We wish all travellers a safe and most fulfilling Easter break.”

“The carnage on our roads is unacceptable. Over and above maiming lives of many, it serves further to deplete the state’s limited resources, more so, at a time when we all need to work together to grow South Africa,.
