Residency request denied

19 June 2014, 07:57
I am a Zimbabwean citizen and I currently hold a valid work permit which i got through the Dispensation. i am employed full time and i have a South African child.

My problem is this: My fiance' who was South African sadly passed away in February 2014, after he had tried numerously to help me with obtaining Permanent Residence and failed. However we have a child and she is 6, with me being her only parent living, i went to Home Affairs to apply for Permanent  Resident and was turned down.

My question is: I've bulit a life here in South Africa and a Career and I  dont have anything back in Zim therefore I have no intentions of ever going back permanently, my child is here and she has started school, no one else but me is supporting her, why wont Home Affairs because of my situation allow me to be a Permanent Resident of South Africa, i mean in my instance even becoming a Citizen is an option. 

I've been sent from pillar to post and only to be turned back, what can I do, i want to do this for my child's future, this is her home. 

I do hope I will get some answers soon.
