SPOT-ON analysis
Don't believe a single positive comment you read about this embassy; they are all posted by Leila Custodio herself using fake names! And the sick thing about it is that she cannot see that that is dishonest! One would think that an embassy official would have more integrity. Not with that disrespectful little clown though! The comments by Peter Pilchard and Catherine Stone are spot-on.

I agree, it's a PATHETIC embassy
To the idiotic Custodio : maybe you should look at the remarks posted about other embassies on this site and ask yourself WHY there are so many negative comments about you. Are you too stupid to realize that it's because you a rude power-hungry little idiot with no peoples' skills whatsoever. How much respect do you need to be shown before you do your job? Do you really think that sooo many people would complain like this for no reason. Catch a wake up and get another job, YOU are the problem.

To Chris and Shelby
Dont bother with ambassador, she is a complete barbarian who was originally ambassador to Dubai. She was singled out and questioned in parliament for staying in 5 star hotels and villas for 3 years while 'working' there. The reason she offered in parliament was that she could not find "suitable" alternate accommodation.

Pathetic embassy
Don't you all know that the only positive remarks about this embassy are posted by Custodio herself? It is a well-known fact. It is a useless embassy run by useless people and is an embarrassment to SA.

Pathetic embarassing embassy
The staff at that embassy are allowed to get away with murder, almost as if that embassy has been forgotten by the authorities in SA. Custodio is too stupid to realize that it doesn't work like that in SA or at any other countries' embassies. Its common for stupid people with jobs like hers to behave like that when they are given a tiny bit of influence over other peoples lives. They abuse their power. The embassy is hopelessly inefficient, wastes peoples' time and they are arrogant and rude. Custodio is a small-minded little fool.

Unknown, wish you had a name but anyhow, whats funny is in that Embassy South African national was so rude to his fiancees, this man was talking to Filipino spouse with so much disrespect. A lady came out from Embassy told him not to undermine Filipinos and other people demanded the man apologize to all of us in that queue. I was surprised, coz the lady look like South African & was so proud. High five Embassy!!!

Yes Rudy, I visited the Embassy and as we were waiting to be served two Filipino girls said I should post my profile to internet get a man and visa and its easy since like US style, I can get job and have babies to get relative permit, but they denied me visa. well i dont blame them, I want better life.

I work with a tourist agency and our company apply regularly to the South African Embassy in RCBC. Leila is professional and expedite visa or permits in time. I am wondering and agree with Sherwin why only people with fiancee application are complaining. Remember any country including Philippines will not allow people who are not self sustainable to visit their country. Sherwin is correct you need to prove yourself that you have funds to get a visa. It is not just a giver-way or freebies because you have sponsor.

Hi guys; I hear what you all are saying, but why is it a bunch of you complaining??? I am not accountable to anyone just like the rest of you I am expressing my view and from the same embassy as you all claim to visit. I still persist as a Filipino, and not Leila since I am male for your info Chris,maybe like other complainers, you need as well do some introspection. If you were treated with this alleged disrespect, what did you do? From your posting you seem to be as well insecure, and maybe that is why no one responds to your complains in South Africa
