Home Affairs Needs To Digitize 350 Million Documents, They Say They Can Do The Job In 3 Years

The department of home affairs apparently ha to digitize more than 350-million birth, marriage, death and amendment paper records. Although this looks like an impossible task it is achievable because the department is thinking about hiring 10,000 youths, that are going to be able to pursue a career in this regard and be able to really assist them in dealing with this problem.

The records they are considering date back to 1895, which is the reason why they want to digitize the system because it will ensure that they’re running an efficient system which will be able to deal with the influx of individuals into the country. To also ensure that they are keeping good records of people and they’re able to determine what happened to particular people at certain periods of time, this was revealed by minister Aaron Motsoaledi whereby he also said that more records are in the Gauteng, the North West as well as the Western Cape provinces.

The department plans to recruit 10,000 unemployed young graduates to digitise the documents, we hope that they’ll be able to also uplift the students in the long run and be able to take them up and also provide them with permanent jobs in the department to ensure that they will be able to proceed and do a good thing in that regard in terms of establishing careers.

The department is taking advantage of technological advancements to improve the way it operates to ensure that they have the required security, but they must never forget that they are dealing with Nigerian individuals who are very much equipped in technology and to infiltrate some of this sophisticated places around the world and steal a lot of money from them.

Who is to stop them from trying to hack the system to be able to upload their own documents without people knowing, they are looking for qualified in information technology and document, information and records management qualifications and the project is to run from November until October 2025.
