    I cannot see the reason for penalizing some one who was born, rared and still a South African by heart but who has voluntary applied for the citizenship of another country and has not received PERMISSION to do so!
    Attaining citizen ship of another country shouldn't be seen as a crime> For myself personally, attaining any other citizenship is merely tool to make it easier for one to be able work or engage with the immediate community and surrounding environment!
