Grateful, yet disapointed PDF Print E-mail

While it was grateful for the additional haj quota of 500, the South African Haj and Umrah Council (Sahuc) has expressed its disappointment in the fact that the added quota will only meet the need of 10% of those who are still waiting in the queue to be accredited. The additonal quota - which was confirmed on Saturday - means that South Africa will only be able to send 3,000 pilgrims for haj this year, making it the lowest turnout in decades. Before the implementation of the haj quota system an average of 7,000 - 10,000 South African performed haj annually.

"It is with regret that we inform the public that the quota for haj 2011 has been increased by Saudi haj authorities by 500 spaces only. While we acknowledge the disappointment experienced in the public domain, in haj circles and within Sahuc, we must be grateful for every extra place we are granted," Sahuc secretary general, Shaheen Essop, told VOC's Sunday Live just after 9am.
