Concerns Raised As Uganda Plans DNA Upgrade For Biometric ID Cards - Coming To A Jurisdiction Near You?

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Keep in mind that a lot of experiments in the world take place on the people of Africa. Whether it’s vaccines or something like DNA upgrades for biometric ID cards. This is what is being advanced now and concerns are being raised. Why? If they implement this in one country, it won’t be long before it will spread around the world by the same sinister and diabolic minds that pushed the CONvid-1984 and the deadly COVID shots.

Biometric Update reports:

Uganda’s next digital national ID card will add DNA biometrics to improve identity verification for service delivery, according to Kenyan news site Tuko. The documents already display the face and store fingerprint biometrics of the owner.

Tuko reports that General David Muhoozi, the minister for internal affairs, informed the Ugandan parliament that there are plans to issue “smart digital” IDs that use DNA when current 10-year biometric IDs expire in 2024, according to Tuko.

Muhoozi said that new features including DNA biometrics are being added to “increase portability and verification to support global transactions,” while improving accuracy and the credibility of the credential for the planning and delivery of services.

However, the cost of the DNA national ID may have to come out of the Ugandan governments’ coffers exclusively, as Muhoozi said the program would not be offered for free and was potentially a revenue generator. The existing document is paid for with taxes.

That idea drew criticism from Parliament Deputy Speaker Thomas Tayebwa, who said Ugandans should not have to pay for the national ID directly.

Indeed, Member of Parliament Rose Obiga has said that acquiring the national IDs has already been a challenge for Ugandans. Having to pay will hit poorer citizens hardest and generate resistance.

While Uganda is ahead of some nations in creating programs for biometric passports, driving licenses and similar identity documents, implementation is another story.

Recent reports indicate that there is a backlog of applications for biometric passports causing travel delays and cancelations. Also, a coalition of civil society organizations has sued the Ugandan government for allegedly creating a barrier for women and seniors with the national ID.

Sounds eerily similar to Yuval Noah Harari, don’t you think?

The Editor at questions what is going on.

The revelation made by the State Minister for Internal Affairs, Gen David Muhoozi is disturbing in many ways. Importantly, it is not yet clear how the government intends to acquire the otherwise intrusive information.

Many conversations globally over the last decade have been centred on how private data in the face of rising technology can be protected. Social networking sites such as Facebook have been under scrutiny for leaking users’ data to third parties.

The move to harvest DNA samples, therefore, raises more questions than answers. Why now? Does the data the government has been collecting on a regular basis on multiple platforms not suffice?

The government has data for all national ID holders. It has data for all passport holders. The government has information from voters’ registers, learning institutions, village chairpersons and so on; and most of it is documented.

Yet, somehow, the same government suffers information deficits in times of crime and tracing important documentation or persons of interest.

Most importantly, why does the government want people’s DNA details? To help them in what ways? Aren’t the fingerprints and other details enough?

Instead of looking for DNA, which sounds a herculean task alone, why doesn’t the government corroborate the information within its reach first?

This also raises a rather intriguing matter. Why would one with a national ID be required to apply for a passport or any other government document afresh? Do we have serious data collection and storage mechanisms?

The government has demonstrated that it cannot capture citizens’ data accurately. One example is the national IDs that nearly a quarter of the holders have either spelling errors in names, wrong birth dates or areas of residence.

Why would the government now want Ugandans to trust it with DNA samples? Section 7 of the Data Protection and Privacy Act, 2019 says the government has the power to collect citizens’ data if necessary for the proper performance of a public duty by a public body, national security, or medical purposes.

But Article 27 of the Constitution also provides for citizens’ right to privacy and the law must seek to uphold this tenet.

This guy is paying attention, and make no mistake, they are trying to do the same thing in the US and sadly, too many stupid people are aiding them by providing their DNA in the ridiculous PCR tests, as well as when they send their DNA into these ancestry sites. The sheep are being led to the slaughter and they don’t even know they are aiding their masters.
