President Jacob Zuma on Tuesday received his smart card ID from the home affairs department in Pretoria.

Zuma was welcomed by Home Affairs Minister Naledi Pandor at the offices in the Pretoria CBD.

Pandor then walked Zuma through the process of issuing the new ID to the collection point, where he was handed his smart card.

Zuma also intended visiting the government printing works to name the machine printing the smart card IDs in honour of struggle stalwarts.

One of the first people to receive the new ID card was former president Nelson Mandela, who received his on his birthday on July 18.

Smart card IDs have also been issued to Mandela's ex-wife Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, his wife Graca Machel, Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, and former president Thabo Mbeki.

Other recipients of the first batch of cards included Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe, former president FW de Klerk, and struggle veterans Sophie de Bruyn, Andrew Mlangeni, Ahmed Kathrada, and Dennis Goldberg.
