The African National Congress is not going to amend the Constitution in order to tackle illegal migration.

This was confirmed as the party unveiled the resolutions from its 55th national conference, which took place in December.

The party adopted the Migration Policy Framework which seeks to address illegal migration – a prominent feature of the conference, as the rise of anti-immigrant groups have forced government to face the issue head on.

The ANC has ruled out the amendment of the Constitution in order to address the challenges of illegal migration in the country.

ANC Secretary General Fikile Mbalula says the Constitution will not amended.

”Do we look at amending the constitution? No, not at all. We are going to formulate a programme of action on how some of these resolutions are going to be implemented , in the short term and long term and the legislative implications for the implementation of some of the resolutions”
