NATIONAL ASSEMBLY

FOR ORAL REPLY

QUESTION NO: NO. 3

PUBLISHED IN INTERNATIONAL QUESTION PAPER 3 OF 23 FEBRUARY 2010

Rev K R J Meshoe to ask the Minister of International Relations and Cooperation:

  1. Whether the Government has entered into discussions with the government of Zimbabwe on the implications of their “Indigenisation and Economic Empowerment (General) Regulations 2010 on foreign investment” on the refugee situation in South Africa; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details?

REPLY:

  1. No, South Africa has not entered into discussions with the government of Zimbabwe on the implications of their “Indigenisation and Economic Empowerment (General) Regulations 2010 on foreign investment” on the refugee situation in South Africa.

This law is a national law in Zimbabwe and South Africa thus cannot interfere with the domestic laws of a sovereign state.
