Good Afternoon

We have a staff member that is a Zimbabwean Citizen that is currently on a visa in SA. He is married to a South African woman but it is a traditional marriage and not a legal one. He is having difficulty renewing his visa and wants to become a South African Citizen.
What route does he need to follow. If he attains a legal marriage, will he be able to apply to be a citizen.
He is a low earning staff member so we are trying to assist him with the cheapest option to attain this.

Many Thanks
