ZimEye reports that the Registrar General, Clemence Masango is not sure as to when his office will resume printing passports.
In an interview with ZimEye, Masango said:
I released a notice statement on ZTV in the evening revealing that we have encountered a system malfunction, that is affecting us.
Engineers are working on it so I don’t have any time-frame, it is very difficult to say and I am not an engineer.
Below is an extract from the interview between ZimEye and Masango:
SO FAR WHAT SHOULD PEOPLE DO, SHOULD THEY CONTINUE COMING?
You are asking me something impossible… I have advised that we are having that challenge.
HOW DO WE DESCRIBE THE CHALLENGE?
You are now going technical.
WE WERE ONLY ASKING FOR AN ESTIMATED DATE OF COMPLETION…
Ah, no, this is like if a person is ill, even if you are a doctor, do you determine when the person will be healed? I am not an engineer but this is the situation we are faced with.
