Hundreds of citizens who needed help from the East London Home Affairs department had to wait for hours in long queues yesterday morning due to a network failure.
Some citizens sat on the pavement, others stood in line shielding their faces with newspapers and documents from the scorching sun.
Some had been there for over three hours. Home affairs staff came out regularly to update them on the delay and urge patience as there was no knowing how long it would last.
