I dont know the background of the NZ Saffies so I could be wrong but I would guess they were not NZ citizens when they lived in SA.
Lumb, KP and Kieswetter were all British citizens in SA. Richard Lumb (Michaels father) was a longtime Yorkshire player and both Lumb and Kieswetter never played FC cricket in SA.
This isnt even an issue of mercenaries moving to a country for a better life (which I wouldnt have that much of an issue with either) but KP, Lumb and Kieswetter were/are British citizens exercising their right to work in their country of citizenship.
This is always going to be a common thing as there are tens of millions of British passport holders outside the UK with only 6 mil actually born there.
