The Future of Digital ID in South Africa

In order to gain greater economic benefits from the fourth industrial revolution (4IR), there is a rising demand for a digital identity program in South Africa. The country is in the early stages of adopting digital ID, and there has been a lot of interest from the public and organizations. According to the Department of Home Affairs, a new biometric-based digital identity system, dubbed NIS, is now being built in South Africa and will go a long way towards improving access to several services for citizens and other foreign nations living in the country (DHA). Limited access to important services, such as government benefits, financial services, education, and other critical services, has a severe impact in South Africa. It is through these ongoing conversations that we can construct a more inclusive digital economy and bring about the societal transformation we need by focusing on developing a more inclusive digital identity that citizens recognize and trust.
