Chinamasa Moves In To End Passport Delays

During a question and answer session in Parliament on Wednesday, Minister of Home Affairs and Culture Obert Mpofu revealed that the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development has intervened in a bid to end delays in issuing passports by agreeing to import paper needed by the Registrar General’s Office to print passports on time.

Said Mpofu:

We have challenges within the department that issues passports because of lack of foreign currency to import paper. The Zimbabwean passport, because of its quality whose paper requires imported material, we have had a challenge that we raised with the Ministry of Finance who has intervened and will be bringing in a paper to ensure that the backlog is addressed. As I said earlier on, I was there yesterday and have been assured that the backlog will be addressed as soon as the paper is available. As for the fleecing of applicants, perhaps the Hon. Member can share that with me so that I can address it. I am not aware of that.
