The Home Affairs Department says the deaths of some people are not being properly registered as several businesses have discovered ways to cash in on the death registration process.

Addressing a news conference in Pretoria, Deputy Director General Vusi Mkhize says several undertakers have formed syndicates with Home Affairs staff and are taking advantage of grieving families.

Mkhize says it is not a legal requirement to register deaths through any funeral undertaker.
