In terms of Section 7 of the Identification Act, 1997 (Act No. 68 of 1997) the Director-General is empowered to assign only one identity number to each person whose particulars are included in the population register, and should not, in accordance with the Act, assign two or more identity numbers to one person, or assign one identity number to two or more persons. 

In view of the above, the Department of Home Affairs, through verification checks in the Home Affairs National Identification System (“HANIS”) or the National Population Register, has established that the persons, whose particulars appear in the list that is attached to this notice, have either two or more identity numbers assigned to them (“Duplicates”). 

The Department of Home Affairs hereby calls upon all the persons whose names and particulars are mentioned in the list that is attached to this notice, to at their earliest convenience, and without delay, present themselves to the nearest Home Affairs office for resolution of their Duplicate cases. The resolution of the Duplicates will be effected by way of cancellation of one of the identity numbers, as well as the corresponding identity document, where a person has been assigned two or more identity numbers.

In view of the above, pursuant to this notice, the Department intends to invalidate all the identity numbers relating to the duplicate cases mentioned from HANIS/National Population Register, and consequently cancel the corresponding identity numbers in terms of Section 19 of the Identification Act, 1997. The invalidation of identity numbers will be effected upon resolution of each Duplicate case, and the Department intends to have all the Duplicate identity numbers under this category invalidated by the end of October 2013. In view hereof the persons whose names and particulars are contained in the list attached to this notice are encouraged to at their earliest convenience, without delay, present themselves to the nearest Home Affairs office for resolution of their Duplicate cases as contemplated in this notice.
