Immigration official appears in court on multiple charges related to corruption

PRETORIA - An immigration official, 52-year-old Sam Jan Langa, of the Department of Home Affairs national office appeared in the Kempton Park Regional Court today on charges of corruption, extortion and defeating the ends of justice.
