Hilton College Farm dweller Edward Thusi says his life has been halted since Home Affairs blocked his ID.

Home Affairs says that a local man’s South African citizenship is in dispute, despite him being in possession of a green ID book and having been born in the country.

Edward Thusi’s identity document has been blocked and Home Affairs has directed him to do a DNA test to verify that he is his South African father’s true son.

Thusi was born on the Hilton College Farm in 1960. His mother was a Lesotho national, but his father was South African, and he told The Witness that as far as he knows, he is also a South African citizen.

His parents have died.
