Uganda Will Harvest the DNA of its Citizens Under National ID Program

National File:

The East African nation of Uganda is announcing plans to begin harvesting and tracking the DNA and biometric data of its citizens under an updated version of the country’s national ID program, which will see genetic information added to the ID cards that Ugandans are legally required to obtain.

Uganda began its national ID program in 2014, giving the cards a 10-year lifespan before they reach expiration.  Under plans recently announced by the nation’s government, when cards start expiring in 2024, Uganda will begin to harvest the DNA of its citizens for use in the revamped national ID program, though it isn’t clear exactly how the government plans to extract the DNA from its citizens.

In addition to information on Ugandan’s DNA profiles, the updated ID cards will feature biometric data and fingerprints, as well as information gathered from the eyes of Ugandan citizens using scan technology. All this, the government says, will help speed up the identity verification process at government offices and administrative centers, as well as assist law enforcement in their investigations. The cards are also digitized, giving the government instant access to citizens’ information via a massive national catalog. more

  1. Idi Amin used to eat people when he ran the place.

    Maybe this will help his successor decide who is the most succulent?

    …or perhaps they will run the tests on his stool.

    You know, so they can notify next of kin.

    …or invite them to dinner…

  2. …so, if they eat the guy that eats that compliance pill in the earlier thread, does that make them compliant too?

    Does eating a vaxxed guy give you his spike protiens?

    Do you box the poop and return to the family for burial?

    …sooo many questions…

  3. Before or after they’re eaten?
    Uganda – a great place to be from!

    Q: What’s the best thing that EVER came out of Uganda?
    A: An empty Greyhound bus!
