On Thursday Minister of Home Affairs
Naledi Pandor announced that from the 4th
of March 2013 the Department of Home Affairs will end
the practice of issuing abridged birth certificate, and will only issue
unabridged birth certificates to parents of newborn babies.
Minster Pandor said the current
abridged birth certificate suffers from failures which include increase of
additional paperwork, its easy to reproduce and lack of security.

current IT modernization project, she wanted to move the department to a
“I think the advent of a fully
modern technology based department will assist in improving a great deal of its
service delivery achievements and putting us in the top ranks of departments
that use technology effectively” Pandor said.
