The committee setup by the government to ensure a well-organised Hajj and Umrah experience for pilgrims has requested feedback from those who carried out the holy journey this year.
Former ambassador, Ebrahim Rasool who chairs the Ministerial Committee on the Efficient Management of the Hajj and Umrah Pilgrimages says the feedback will be used to engage with the Saudi Arabian Ministry of Hajj and Umrah to secure better conditions for future pilgrims.
The committee was setup by International Relations Minister Naledia Pandor in February.
The Committee met with Saudi Arabian officials during the 2023 Hajj, including the Muttawif company responsible for the pilgrims, the Allawi Family which does the hosting and the Saudi Minister of Hajj and Umrah.
Issues such as the limited quota for South Africa were discussed, and improving conditions at holy sites such as Arafat and Mina.The Committee is hopeful the quota for Hujaaj allowed from South Africa will be increased.
Submissions may be made via email to [email protected]. The deadline is 21 July 2023.
