Govt Removes Some IDs Registration Requirements

President Emmerson Mnangagwa on Saturday said that his Government has streamlined requirements for the issuance of national civic documents, that is birth certificates, death certificates and national identification cards (IDs).

Addressing ZANU PF members who had gathered for the party’s National Cell Day in Kwekwe, Mnangagwa said citizens can now get the vital documents from the Registrar-General’s office for free. He said:

In the past, when one went to apply for these documents, they were asked for their exact dates of birth.

And when they failed to give the exact dates they were asked to bring along a close relative to vouch for them.

We then realised this was problematic and changed the rules.

Now we have put in place new regulations that have removed all of those requirements.

We also said there is no longer a need to pay for that document.

You now get it for free; everything is now free . . . So we have streamlined everything.

Those who do not have IDs and birth certificates should seek assistance from their local leadership and get the documents for free.

Let us thank His Excellency Advocate President ED Mnangagwa for simplifying the issuance of birth certificates and national identify cards. During Ian Douglas Smith era, one way of gating a birth certificate was obtaining a letter from the school headmaster in which he affirmed the date of birth which he had in his register kkkkk. That is how my father got mine in 1969 when I was about to write my standard 6 examinations from the then Ministry of Education.
