upliftment of ban
Good day i travelled to south Africa Cape Town during festive on the 29 December to 3rd jan 2019
I had a wonderful time site seeing.on my way back I had a puncture which delayed me from reaching the border on time before it closes. Unfortunately I arived and hour late.I slept at the border following morning when gate opened I was assisted but I was HIT with one years ban.It means I was banned for just over staying by an hour really I very dissapoint at the manner in which you treat foreigners especially US Batswana your number with good relations but you don't treat it's people well.

I sincerely request the ban to be uplifted.i will provide my passport number when requested but not in this public domain.

Thank you for your consideration.

In 2017, I visited South Africa, I do it regularly as I have a family that. I was in a quest to locate my ancestral people which was quite a challenge, travelling all over. I happened to lose track of duration I was granted, upon my return to Botswana In October 2017, I realised I over stayed for 30 days, I was banned for 5 years, though I tried explaining why it happened, it wasn't intentional. Now im struggling because I have to undergo my spiritual journey as all my ancestors are in South Africa. My life is a living hell because I can't connect with them. I would like kniw if my ban could not be possibly uplifted or reduced? My record of immigration processes are clean and have no criminal record in both countries. Right now I'm spiritually disgruntled because my prophetic gift is compromised as I can not connect with my answers. Please provide clarity and enlighten me of possibilities of me being assisted upon this sensitive matter.
