Lack Of Boarding Facilities Hit Zimstat

Lack Of Boarding Facilities Hit Zimstat

The Zimbabwe Statistical Agency (Zimstat) has struggled to find accommodation for enumerators for their training in some districts such as Karoi District.

Karoi has a serious lack of boarding facilities and this forced 221 enumerators to travel an estimated 380km in search of accommodation for census training.

Some trainees from Kariba rural travelled to Chinhoyi where there are boarding facilities for the training – a distance of about 380km.

Zimstat has been training enumerators since the closure of schools nearly three weeks ago, with the programme ending this Monday.

Zimstat spokesperson Mercy Chidemo said enumerators will travel to their areas ahead of the commencement of the census on Thursday. She said:

They (enumerators) will be going back to their areas tomorrow (today) as the census begins on April 21.

There are training centres in various districts across the country.

Some are at boarding and day schools depending on distances.

Reports indicate that in some areas, enumerators are yet to get the tablets they will be using to capture data during the enumeration.
