    1. The same here I applied on behalf of my aunt, reason for rejection being identity verification for all these months. August still pending I’ve been trying the 0800601011 number with no luck, sent emails to the complain email address.

      My aunt is so furious thinking that I used her money and we have not received any feedback. My worry is that when she goes for voting she has been using the same identity document. Maar why are the social development people playing with othe people’s feelings. My aunt never worked her entire life.
