While giving oral evidence before a Parliamentary Portfolio committee on Defence and Home Affairs chaired by Makokoba MP Tshinga Dube (Zanu-PF) on issuance of primary documents, Registrar General Tobaiwa Mudede refused to reveal his age saying that it is a personal question.
It is a highly personalised question. If you want to know the age of the RG, you might as well go to the whole Government. The RG is highly competent to the extent that the African Union has come to get information on our system, even the United Nations has come to my office. That speaks volume of the RG. If you want to know the competence of the RG, just visit my office. It is not about age. It is my right and I do not need to answer that question. The fact that I am an RG and not an MP does not mean that I should be put in an awkward position.
