On Monday the e.tv’s Ashes to Ashes actor said that his wife was still detained.
Here’s an update from Nyaniso Dzedze:
- Yana is still detained,
- They refer to her as high risk,
- We are not playing victim to this situation,
- We are fighting injustice and a State impediment,
- We are both emotionally tested,
- It hurts…
“I have lawyers on this BUT… Any and all assistance will be so greatly appreciated. My wife is detained because she has a German passport,” said Nyaniso Dzedze.
Nyaniso said that they were in Rwanda, Kigali for about 6 days.
“A day before we flew back to the country (South Africa) on the 18th of March the president announced that people who were from high-risk countries will not be allowed entry into the country. So even though Yana and I had not been to any high-risk countries we flew back from Rwanda anyway,” explains Nyaniso Dzedze.
He said that when they arrived at Customs Yana was denied access because her passport is German.
“We explained she has not been to Germany since she was 15 years old and has not been to her mother’s house in the UK since last year August. Her passport clearly states that since August 2019 she was in South Africa, Zanzibar, South Africa again and Rwanda,” shares Nyaniso Dzedze.
The actor said that the law passed is now changed somehow to Passport holders are to be expelled, and no longer possible virus careers that have traveled to high-risk areas.
“Now she is being detained by a private Detention center that is neither police nor state official Detention. They lock up my wife and all other people detained there in isolated rooms and let them out to eat. This Detention is not living up to sanitary standards of World Health Organizations. There are no hand sanitizers, no hand wash, no gloves or face masks,” he said.
Nyaniso Dzedze said that on top of it all, they are informed that the people being detained are going to be financially accountable for their Detention.
“So they’re paying to be there as though they have a choice. They won’t let us remove our wives to put at least in transit hotels. No one there is being screened, tested or quarantined.

My Wife and I’s current situation… This Corona Pandemonium has brought us to a place of non sensical resolve. Yana and I have not been anywhere near the “High risk countries” yet we are both not allowed back home. Dear South Africa… Please release Us from Detention. #TheWizard
“It seems that immigration is not concerned about the COVID-19 virus at all, because even the staff working there is not taking any protection measures for themselves. They aren’t wearing face masks or gloves,” shares Nyaniso Dzedze.
He said that the “worst” part of it is they are all getting their phones and some of their belongings were taken away from them.
“The worst part of it is they are all getting their phones and some their belongings taken away from them. They are being treated like criminals and are not given permission to see family or friends who wish to visit,” said a hurt Nyaniso.
Nyaniso started to plea for help on Friday after his wife was detained and he was being forced to fly out of his home country, South Africa.
