Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu received his ID smartcard.

The Minister of Home Affairs Naledi Pandor handed the card to him in an envelope outside the Desmond and Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation building in Cape Town Thursday morning.

Wearing warm, casual clothes instead of his iconic purple robes, Tutu closely inspected the card and then erupted with laughter.

Tutu also told News24 that "This is the card and yes, it's got my mother's nose. I think Zapiro [the cartoonist] would probably be quite happy".
