Home Affairs Minister Cain Ndabazekhaya Ginyilitshe Mathema has announced that passport production is set to improve within the next three weeks.

Mathema told journalists that the Minister of Finance has released funds which were used to reduce the debt owed to suppliers of consumables needed.

This week 50 000 consumables for passport production were received by Home Affairs and one printer was purchased.

Mathema told journalists that passport production is done locally, however, consumables such as gold foil and security thread are imported and require foreign currency. At present, the national production centre has over 92 000 booklets in store awaiting personalisation upon acquisition of necessary consumables

Malema was touring the national passport production centre at KGVI on Friday.
