In South Africa, you may only apply for an identity document when you’re 16 and above but, that’s about to change. Cabinet has approved a new bill that will allow citizens to get their IDs at the age of 10.
Cabinet has given the green light for the publication of two bills for public comment. The first one is the National Identification and Registration Bill of 2022. It seeks to lay out an integrated digital national identification system. The second is the One-Stop Border Post Bill. It will make it easier to get people and goods through the country’s borders. eNCA speaks to Home Affairs Minister Aaron Motsoaledi.
