However, speaking to The Herald on Monday, the Minister of Home Affairs, Kazembe Kazembe dismissed as fake reports that passport charges have been increased. He said:

The local prices have not changed. We are not trying to make profits out of it. Passports are documents that our citizens are supposed to have.

So, Government will still subsidise them, but we are simply saying the fees that people are paying right now are not sustainable but they (charges) have not gone up as yet. No!
