|Chaos rocks census enumerators training|

The training of census enumerators which was scheduled to start this Tuesday did not take place due to confusion over who should participate.
In an interview, Director Population Census and Surveys, Mr Washington Mapeta confirmed the development and expressed disappointment that the confusion will have a bearing on the number of days people will be trained, adding that it might also affect the quality of information that will come out of the census.
Population Census Harare Provincial Co-ordinator, Mrs Elizabeth Banda Karinda said it is sad that such confusion happened at the crucial and last stage of training but expressed hope that responsible authorities will look into the issue as a matter of urgency.
The National Population Census will be held from the 18th to the 27th of this month.
Moyo was speaking at a media briefing where he told journalists that historically security forces have always had a role to play in the country’s national census.
