JOHANNESBURG - Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba wants swift action taken against a lax official caught on video.
In it, the woman appears to be distracted by her phone while on duty.
She mistakenly stamps a passport twice while constantly looking at her phone.
I was this morning informed about the video circulating on social media platforms, and have asked the Department of @HomeAffairsSA to investigate this matter and take swift action against the official. pic.twitter.com/ZwllSemEyZ— Malusi Gigaba (@mgigaba) March 14, 2018
She then hands back the documents without realising her mishap.
This has sparked outrage on social media, with many pointing out the inefficiency of some public officials.
