South Africa is a great country with a great peoples.
But those one who is wirking in South Africa Embassy at Addis Ababa, have a big problem. If someone applied for a visa with proper documents they must give a visa or if they reject they must give a proper rejection paper, but what they do is the reverse, i really doubt that if the higher officials knows about it. Generally they are wrong we did not expect humiliation and disrespect from such a respected embassy. I think the officers who are dealing with the visa section shoud reshuffled. Otherwise it will disgrace the image of the Embassy.

Hope you have got my idea.

Appeal for medical overstay!!!
Dear Hilda Dlamini, Rouine and Martina,

I, Dr. Wasihun Worku; one of a medical lecturer and dental surgeon of Ethiopia working on different governmental, private and volunteering institutions and also the founder of the 1st charitable Dental clinic of the region which stands to serve all the vulnerable, helpless elder and orphan societies of the region freely and the publisher of < Graceful Project > which is targeted on helping those of vulnerable and at risk children on accessing them for a safe and qualified education.

As you know, I have been in South Africa from Oct 2014 - January 2015 for an eyes treatment with a diagnosis of Pathological Myopia in order to save my eyes from blindness and further critical problems due to absence of medical treatment here in Ethiopia.

I have really got your country RSA as a very special gift of my life in order to save my eyes from blindness, to finish my doctorate degree and to see things clearly in order to save other people life after undergoing many surgical procedures and follow up cares. I always express my heartily gratitude to your esteemed embassy RSA, to Professor Roux and for all people who participating for return of my vision.

After the surgery, I was saving many dental patients and I have done a lot of things to my poorest communities. But now a day, I am facing with blurred vision, increasing of the shadow on my left eye and feeling of lens discomfort. It is very difficult for me to extract teeth, doing of minor surgical procedures and exact site identifications minimal caries due to shadow coverage.

Hence, today, I have contacted the Embassy of South Africa in the head quarter of Addis Ababa with holding all of the documents and the physical report of the Professor Roux (my RSA ophthalmologist) for my over stay.

Dear Hilda Dlamini, I kindly request you and the esteemed embassy to grant me an urgent medical visa to South Africa as usual for the betterment of my eyes vision, to succeed my lifelong plans and to save my eyes from other complications.

While I was in South Africa for an eyes treatment, I have been in a critical eyes problem and I can’t see things more than 01 meter. Therefore, it complicates my eyes surgery and it takes another 02 months in order to return my eye vision to the normal sight as the Ophthalmologist states here on the document.

In the mean time, I went to the the South African Home Affair office of Pretoria in order to extend my medical visa before its expiry with holding all of my medical documents and depositing the money to the Standard Bank as I attached below.

Hence please help me to get the visa or respond to the email that I sent


Your faithfully

Dr. Wasihun Worku.

Why do Ethiopians and eritreans still possess forged identity documents-South African
To all.

I have been informed that due to a long delay of Home Affairs offices applications ,most of Ethiopians and Eritreans chose to use forged identity documents while refugee Home Affairs offices are well functional now or any other Home affairs offices.
Those who are known must be sent their details to their country of origin for notification.
As an advise,they must comply and apply for genuine documents including some more from other nations.
This must be interpoled.
