JOHANNESBURG - Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa says the Department of Home Affairs needs to step up its service delivery.

Ramaphosa visited two home affairs offices as well as the Government Printing Works in Pretoria on Thursday.

The deputy president said he was impressed by the world class service and technological advances but admitted there are shortfalls.

"We want to have better facilities so that we can serve our people better."

Ramaphosa spent two days on the stand at the Farlam Commission of Inquiry earlier this week, answering questions about his involvement in the days leading up to the Marikana shooting on 16 August 2012.
