KZN and Home Affairs minister to crack whip in 2010

2009-11-26 00:00

HOME Affairs Minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma said her department will vigorously embark on campaigns to get citizens’ identity documents, marriage certificates and birth certificates to them starting next year, in partnership with the KwaZulu-Natal go­vernment.

Speaking at a press briefing in the office of KZN Premier Dr Zweli Mkhize yesterday, Dlamini-Zuma said that by the 2011 local government elections, all those eligible to vote should have IDs so that political parties will not mount a negative campaign about the distribution of the documents.

The minister said the partnership will extend to the elected government representatives visiting Home Affairs offi­ces, while Mkhize added that some visits will be in the form of surprise calls.
