National IDs For High School Students Only

The government is giving preference to high school learners in the issuance of polythene-synthetic Identity Cards (IDs) while limiting to the general public.

The move has been necessitated by a shortage of consumables and unpaid licences and dongles that require foreign currency.

Pupils are being prioritised to ensure that they can register for the Zimbabwe School Examination Council (ZIMSEC) examinations.

Speaking in Parliament on Thursday, Minister of Home Affairs and Cultural Heritage Kazembe Kazembe said the Civil Registry Department was limiting the number of applicants for polythene-synthetic IDs. He said:

On the issue of national identification, my ministry faces challenges in issuing polyethene synthetic identification.

This is due to a shortage of consumables and unpaid licences and dongles that require foreign currency.

Kazembe said due to the shortage of polyethene synthetic, the ministry has relied on issuing Green Copy Waiting Passes to citizens waiting for the plastic IDs.

The Minister also said they are planning to conduct a national mobile registration exercise once all the logistics are in place in order to end long queues at registry offices. He said:

To address this situation, my ministry plans to conduct a national mobile registration exercise once all logistics are in place, this is to make sure that everyone gets a chance of applying for a national identity card and in order to curb long queues mobile registration exercise will come in handy.
