Calls for extension of registration exercise

The mobile registration exercise for birth certificates and identity cards ends today amid calls by the people of Marondera to extend the period.

Long queues still charactise some mobile registration centres which is a clear indication of the challenges of registration in most communities.

With the programme having come to an end people of Marondera say they want an extension as they are yet to be registered.

Some said the stringent requirements needed for one to get a birth certificate or national identity cards defeats the whole purpose of trying to ensure every citizen has identity documents.

The mobile registration programme started on the 4th of September to assist people to have proper identity documents to register as voters.

The government scrapped payment for the IDs for all citizens. ZBC
