Minister of Home Affairs Hlengiwe Mkhize said today that their IT Department is working around the clock on a new system that will ensure that those who have their birthdays on their date of birth, have the correct information on their ID cards.
“Some people in our country have their birthdays on the day they were born. We want to ensure that this is correct on their ID’s as well. When we archive this, we will then roll out the new system. Our system will also accommodate those who’s birthdays are not on the days they were born. We request everyone to come forward to enquire with us if they need help, we will help them free of charge. A budget of R150m is already out for this project.” said Minister Mkhize.
