The Registrar General’s Office of says the mobile registration for identification documents, which began on Monday is progressing well and smoothly at the various centres.

The office said although the number of people turning up for the exercise is still low, numbers are expected to increase in the coming days.

The Registrar General, Tobaiwa Mudede revealed that his office has compiled the dates, times and venues of all the mobile stations in all the country’s provinces.

“The itinerary has already been submitted for publication to ensure that those who wish to obtain birth certificates and national IDs do so without any hitches. Those who wish to obtain ID cards but are not citizens of the country, should go through the necessary procedures which entail first renouncing their former citizenship before coming to Zimbabwe, and applying for the Zimbabwean citizenship,” said Mudede, adding that ample time is needed to carry out this exercise as the application requires a number of procedures including verification and vetting.

The mobile registration exercise kicked off this Monday and will last for three months and it is in preparation for voter registration ahead of the 2018 harmonised elections.
