NAMIBIANS will soon be getting new and revamped identity document cards, after Cabinet approved the layout.

Home Affairs and Immigration Public Relations Officer, Margret Kalo, says although the launch date hasn’t been confirmed yet, Namibians will not have to pay to get the new IDs. Permanent residents, permit holders and refugees will also be eligible for the new IDs.

The first “new look” IDs will be given to President Hage Geingob, Vice President Nangolo Mbumba, Prime Minister Saara Kuugongelwa-Amadhila, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of International Relations and Cooperation, Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah, Founding Father Sam Nujoma, Hifikepunye Pohamba, Lukas Sinimbo and Peter Katjavivi.
