National Registration going on well

Written by 

The National Registration Bureau says it is impressed with the high turnout of people registering for the National identification cards.



Spokesperson for the Bureau Norman Fulatira in a statement said so far over 100-thousand people have been registered since the exercise started on May 24.


“The Bureau also acknowledges challenges so far met, including resignation of at least three staff due to personal reasons, which should be respected as a human right. The Bureau has also noted challenges because of chilly weather in Mchinji and Ntchisi districts under phase one,” reads the statement in part.


The statement further states, in conjunction with stakeholders, the NRB is doing everything possible within limited resources to ensure that no eligible citizen is denied the opportunity to register because of these hiccups.


The mass registration exercise is being conducted in five phases, with the first phase covering Kasungu, Ntchisi, Nkhotakota, Mchinji, Dowa and Salima. The Bureau is therefore encouraging citizens in districts being covered in the first phase to visit their nearest registration centre to get registered.


The mass registration drive is a government project being implemented by the UNDP with support from the government of Malawi, EU, British government, Royal Norwegian Embassy, Irish aid and USAID.
