Home Affairs online again


The Department of Home Affairs is back on track after clearing up its system problems.

The department’s services were not available at all yesterday (Thursday) due to a technical problem in the system of the state’s information technology agency (Sita) which affects access to the national population register.

Siya Qoza, spokesperson for the Department of Internal Affairs, says the mistake was cleared up the same day.

“The system has been back online since the afternoon (Thursday) and services are again available to all citizens and foreigners,” he says.

“Technicians associated with Sita monitor the system to ensure that the solution is sustainable.”

Qoza says the department will provide updates on the state of affairs where necessary.
