This is part of the government’s new strategy to repatriate refugees once peace and stability have returned to their countries.

Home Affairs officials confirmed this week that refugees from Liberia, Rwanda and Sierra Leone could also face deportation.

These countries have been declared safe by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, which over the past seven years has declared a “cessation of refugee status” for all four countries.

The move by the government has been described by one migration expert as a possible strategy to reduce the number of asylum-seekers in South Africa, of which there are about 230 000.
