ID mess: Cape Town man told he does not exist

Cape Town - “I just want a normal life with a job and a wife.” This was the heartfelt plea made by Lesley Basson. He shares an identity number with someone else and this has caused hardships for the 34-year-old who says he is not able to find suitable employment or tie the knot.Though he could not complete his education because he was told that he was a slow learner, Basson went up to Grade 8 and said he was passionate about carpentry and electrical work.

“I went to school, I didn’t finish because I was in two accidents and my granny said I should stop going to school because it affected me,” Basson told Weekend Argus this week.
