Integrated digital system in Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe’s Minister of Home Affairs and Cultural Heritage Kazembe Kazembe has announced the setting up of an ambitious integrated digital system, based on a soon-to-be-launched Zimbabwe Population Register (ZPR), that will streamline the way government services are delivered.

The digital system will enable citizens apply for national ID cards and biometric passports, register the birth of children, help security services monitor and track down criminals, and then also facilitate safe border crossings into the country.

According to Ministry of Home Affairs and Cultural Heritage, work is already ongoing and the system could be in place within the next six months. It will connect different government ministries, departments, and agencies to enable them deliver different important services to Zimbabweans and other nationals living in the country.
