SAHUC Announces Hajj Operators

Friday, January 3, 2020

The South African Hajj Umrah Council (SAHUC) has released the list of accredited hajj operators that will offer services to accredited hujjaj ahead of the Hajj season.

A total of nineteen operators have been accredited, but excludes New Heights Travel, owned and operated by Fazila Malek.

Malek was barred as a hajj operator by Sahuc on Wednesday.

The Hajj body says the decision follows a disciplinary inquiry held against Malek.

Malek who is a well-known Hajj operator and has been taking Muslims for Hajj for decades has come under severe pressure following widespread claims that she alleged she owes at least two and a half million Rand in loans and fees to Muslims who have booked with her travel agency.

Malek has denied allegations of defrauding Muslims.
