Calls For Local Production Of Vehicle Number Plates To Clear Backlog Intensify

Mr Aleck Ncube, one of the senior officers manning the National University of Science and Technology (NUST) Innovation Hub who is also an intellectual property expert has said that vehicle number plates can be made locally.

His remarks come after the Cabinet last week task innovation hubs to find solutions to the teething issue. He said:

The problem of vehicle number plates can be addressed locally. These can be easily produced here at home instead of importing. The only issue is about the security system or features of the number plates, which requires us to invest in developing capacity and competency of local industry to produce them.

There is a number plate backlog at the Central Vehicle Registry which authorities attribute to the scarcity of foreign currency needed to import the plates.

Briefing reporters last week, Minister of Information, Senator Monica Mutsvangwa said that Cabinet was confident that the move to produce number plates locally will ease the current shortages being experienced in the country and will also create employment.

  1. If they are made locally there will definitely be a lot of corruption. That’s normal behavior in a bankrupt country that is ‘governed’ by the totally corrupt, the biggest thieves in Africa and the inept.
