Ward Councilor organizes ID document campaign

Ward Councilor, Nas Abrahams, for Valhalla Park, Nooitgedacht, Bishop Lavis and surrounding areas will host an ID document campaign at the Nooitgedacht Civic Centre. Abrahams contacted home affairs requesting to arrange the campaign, after discovering that many people of age, especially the youth, had not yet applied for an identity document. He says that it is vital for people to have this document for employment purposes.
“We’ve got a huge unemployment rate in our area,” said Abrahams. Some of the excuses are that members do not have money to go to home affairs in Bellville. Abrahams sought a way to solve the problem.
“You can’t get any kind of employment without an ID document. You can’t open a bank account, or even sign a contract without the document.”
Abrahams hopes that residents will make use of the opportunity and apply for their identity documents.
