Fingerprinting for newlyweds on the cards

The Department of Home Affairs is considering introducing regulations that will require newlyweds to have their fingerprints taken at their nuptials, reports the Cape Times. The move is part of measures aimed at stamping out fraudulent marriages, according to Home Affairs Minister Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula.
