The department of home affairs warned on Thursday that its systems are offline due to what it has described as a “technical problem” with the mainframe of its service provider.
In a statement, the department said a problem with the State IT Agency (Sita) mainframe has led to the problem. This, it said, has affected access to the National Population Register.
“We have contacted Sita and have been assured that its technicians and engineers are attending to the matter. We hope that this will not take long to be resolved.”
It didn’t immediately provide further information.
