The Department of Home Affairs says it has processed so far over 140 000 Smart ID cards and has exceeded its target of 100 000. 

Deputy Minister of Home Affairs Fatiema Chohan on Wednesday said the department has about 26 000 Smart ID Cards that need to be collected. 

Chohan said this month pensioners who are 60-years and above born in March are encouraged to go and apply for their Smart ID Cards in over the 30 offices earmarked for this project.

“There are some delays in people coming to fetch and collect their ID cards once they have applied for them.  In this regard we have received reports of people calling our hotline once they have received an sms calling on them to come to collect their Smart ID cards at the offices of the department” Chohan added.

Deputy Minister of Home Affairs Fatiema Chohan said these hotline queries have been to the effect that many people suspect that the sms sent by the department is a hoax because they have only applied for the cards two or three days before.
