Waiver will make BVR easier
EDITOR — Government announced that all citizens will acquire civil documents for 90 days free of charge.
People had been crying foul over exorbitant fees that they were asked to pay before they could be issued with personal documents and this resulted in many people living without identification papers.
A payment of $5 was required for lost birth certificates, national identity cards $10 and $50 for aliens.
Next year we will be having our harmonised elections and people should start registering. With- out the necessary documents one is not able to vote.
This programme is good for the voter registration programme to go smoothly.
We are grateful to the Minister of Home Affairs Dr Ignatius Chombo for standing in for the people.
People need to use these three months to acquire lost identification documents that will enable them to vote next year.
Having a 90-day waiver will certainly benefit many and in the case of Zimbabwe, make the registration process easy. Victor Zvoushe, Chitungwiza.
