MUREWA – President Emmerson Mnangagwa has established a passport issuing office at Murewa in the eastern province of Mashonaland.
Days spent traveling to Harare and Marondera to apply for passports and other national documents will be a thing of the past for Murewa people once the offices open.
The government has reiterated its commitment to ensuring that people have access to basic services at their doorstep.
“We want as many centers as possible to offer these services so that our people do not move to remote places,” said Kazembe Kazembe, Minister of Home Affairs and Cultural Heritage.
“As a province, we are very happy to have the e-passport services in this part of our province where people have difficulty getting the services,” said Senator Aplonia Munzverengwi.
Government is also constructing other registration offices in Wedza and Goromonzi, with the buildings in various stages of completion.
E-passport services have also been launched in Harare, Bulawayo and Chitungwiza, while the first-ever passport office opened in Hwange last month.
Another e-passport office is expected to open in Victoria Falls once the government begins talks to leave no one or places behind in the development scheme.
