A CONCERNED group is calling for an end to fake marriages in Mzansi.

The group, calling themselves SA Citizens, claimed that foreign nationals are marrying South African women to obtain citizenship.

Tshidiso Motikoe, a member of SA Citizens, said they are spearheading a call by Home Affairs Minister Dr Aaron Motsoaledi to amend the Immigration Act to allow men from other countries to obtain citizenship through marriage.

SA Citizens members marched to the Department of Home Affairs on Friday, 19 January to submit the reviews and recommendations requested by Motsoaledi in relation to immigrants and asylum seekers.
