“Massive Scandal Rocks Lupane Passport Office,” Mthwakazi Republic Party

The Mthwakazi Republic Party (MRP), has claimed that there is a “massive scandal” at the Registrar General’s Lupane office in Matabeleland North. The radical party claims that passport seekers from as far afield as Harare and Masvingo are being made to pay bribes as high as USD$100.

These reports were however refuted by an official at the Registrar General provincial offices in Bulawayo. Speaking to New Zimbabwe, she said:

It’s pure fabrication. It would make no economic sense for someone to travel from Harare or Masvingo to go and apply for a passport in Lupane.

If you factor in transport costs, that alone will be more than the cost of that passport. And imagine having to pay USD$100 on top of that.

She added, after checking with the Lupane office’s internal systems, that no applicants from Harare or Masvingo had been completed there.

Mthwakazi, led by Mqondisi Moyo, had in a statement said:

Massive scandal rocks Lupane passport office. Mthwakazi Republic Party is saddened by the level of corruption at the Lupane passport office. The party’s intelligence department through a tip off raised by the Lupane residents has today unearthed a massive act of corruption by the officials at the Matabeleland North headquarters.

The massive corruption scandal which was witnessed by the MRP intelligence department is so much disturbing. Scores of people from Harare and as far as Masvingo were today being served with urgent passports.

An emergency passport costs RTGS$253 while the ordinary one costs RTGS$53.
