There are serious security questions about the new SA passport which was quietly introduced last year and Home Affairs declined to answer them.
So why do forgers, hoods and al-Qaeda just adore our new Mickey Mouse passports?
Home Affairs happily cranked out sub-standard passports for 13 years – until April last year when international pressure forced the department to introduce a new passport incorporating the technology it had spurned all those years ago.
Needless to say, the government has turned a blind eye to the dirty tricks perpetrated by its minions. Taxpayers will pay the price.
