Dear Sir/Madam I humbly ask that you examine the status of my passport. I tried using my new passport, which is an attachment to this email, to travel to South Africa. The first time this occurred last year, when I had to return to Maputo, the border official instructed me to get my old passport since he couldn't find the precise specifics of the charges against me in the computer system. I ran into the same problem again on Jan 7th, 2023, but this time I had my old passport with me, and sadly I was not allowed to enter again. So I would like to hear what the allegations are against me. Kind regards
