Country men and country women, I greet you. On this occasion, I am here to address you on the question of the importance of each one of us having a digitized identity card, meaning a computerized and computer read, identity card. This is very different from the usual identity cards issued by a mult
iplicity of authorities ─ schools,
employers, government departments or even those issued by the department of immigration. The digitized identity cards are superior and un-comparable for the following reasons: 1. A digitized identity card is impossible to forge. Why?
This is because a person’s picture, names, biometric
details (how tall, etc) and fingerprints are stored in the
computer’s central memory. If one, for instance, puts a picture of a person on top of another person’s
identity card, the computer would reject that card.
