Govt still charging money for IDs & birth certificates despite Chombo’s declaration

The Registrar general’s Department is still charging money for one to get a national identification card or birth certificate despite the declaration by Home Affairs Minister Ignatius Chombo that the documents will be issued out for free.

The department told The Herald that it is yet to receive instructions from treasury. Said the Registrar General’s department:

The Registrar General’s Office did not and has not yet received written instructions from Treasury to enable it to waive the charges on national identity documents, birth and death certificates. Fees for these registrations are also controlled statutory instruments which are still operational.
