Opperman, Ms G to ask the Minister of Home Affairs
Whether his department has put any measures in place to provide his department’s services, especially relating to the application and collection of new smart identity cards, to the residents in the (a) Karoo Highlands Local Municipality and (b) Hantam Local Municipality, who can currently only make use of his department’s offices in Calvinia; if not, in each case, why not; if so, what are the relevant details in each case?
(a & b) The Department has identified Louriesfontein in the Hantam Local Municipality for the high impact service delivery program using mobile trucks provided by Head Office (with emphasis on smart card application and collection). The Department has thus far planned the outreach program at Louriesfontein and an additional town (to be announced) in Karoo Highlands Local Municipality is also being considered for a similar high impact service delivery program.
