Identity Thieving

Why do people steal other people’s identity? The obvious answer could be to have a new alias or even a con not wanting to be recognized by the public. However, recently in Pietermaritzburg there is a case of Musawenkosi Gumede who is unable to apply for his ID, driver’s licence or even a bank account because someone had stolen his identification. They both share the same ID and names.  Right now he is unable to get a job because of being a victim of identity theft. Could it be a misunderstanding? In a world full of fake ID’s and documents, it’s very likely this could have been intentional.
