Pretoria - Home Affairs Minister Naledi Pandor arrived at the department’s offices in the Pretoria CBD on Tuesday to hand over a smart card ID to President Jacob Zuma.

Pandor toured the offices and spoke to members of the public who were there for help.

The home affairs department issued former president Nelson Mandela with a smart card ID on 18 July, when he celebrated his 95th birthday.

At that event, Pandor said the transformation from the ID book to the high tech ID card was symbolic of South Africa's expedition in the democratic dispensation.
