Most children travelling to South Africa for this year’s Easter Holidays were stranded at the Beitbridge Boarder Post after being turned away for failing to produce affidavits. Due to the increase in cases of child trafficking, the SA Department of Home Affairs last year introduced a new law demanding parents travelling with their children had to produce an affidavit, a certified copy of a birth certificate and a copy of passport of the other parent not traveling.
