110

Government has said many foreigners managed to register during the National Identity mass registration campaign in the Southern Region.

This was revealed on Wednesday, September 13 at Ryalls hotel in Blantyre at a joint press conference by US Ambassador to Malawi Virginia Palmer and Ministry of Home Affairs and Internal Security Grace Chiumia.

Chiumia says many foreigners managed to register.

At the conference, it was noted that some districts bordering with Mozambique registered more people than the estimated populations of the districts.

According to statistics delivered at the press conference, Blantyre registered 98% of the estimated population, Nsanje 105.7%, Chikwawa 107.4%, Mulanje 99.3%, Thyolo 95.4%, Neno 105.3%, Mwanza 109.2% and Chiradzulu 80.6%.

Responding to why this was happening, minister of home affairs and internal security Chiumia said that the figures really showed that many foreigners managed to register in the border districts.

She however assured people not to worry about this claiming no foreigner will be given a Malawian ID card.

Chiumia further said measures have been put in place to identify all foreigners who got registered.

At the conference, Palmer officially announced the statistics for phase 3 of the national ID mass registration campaign.

Ambassador Palmer said in Phase 3, just as in phase 1 and 2, the NRB has achieved nearly full registration coverage among the eligible population and said registration coverage is at 98.5 % in phase 3.

The ambassador said in Phase 3, the estimated number of registrants was 2,256,000 but to date 2,222,000 persons have had their personal data collected by the registration teams representing about 98.5% coverage of the projected eligible population.

She further said in Chiradzulu district, the registration coverage is low at 80.6% claiming there are many people who commute for work to Blantyre and for most of these, it was more convenient to register at centres in and around Blantyre.

“I am delighted to inform you that in Phase 3, just as in phase 1 and 2, the NRB has achieved nearly full registration coverage among the eligible population. So far, registration coverage is at 98.5 % in phase 3.

“You may recall that in Phase 1, we reached 97.2 %and in Phase 2, the teams reached almost a 100% registration of the projected number of people who are entitled to a National ID,” said Palmer.

The National Registration Bureau has since said that it will not relent until every Malawian citizen in the 8 districts of Phase 3, and in the entire country, has had the opportunity to register.

    • If I were in your house would you be sending me to your bedroom the way you do with your kids? There is a limit to being a foreigner otherwise there would have been no geographical demarcations, visas, passports etc

    • Shepherd Mzee Wenger Phiri seems you don’t know what you are talking about Malawi is not a trush or to say agardern of our granny but its for malawians.when it comes to national issue all oreigners are not allowed even the white people also .check out with Tanzania when they were doing their registrations on national Id or voting id,seems you does not know what you are talking about.Yes they can have their passports and visa to be in the the country but not on our Malawi passport,id’s and others.Malawi is for malawians sitikana alendo ayi they are welcome but not kulowelana kuchipinda you get my point

    • Yeah I get you sir Lwazi kweni vikuwapo vyakuti pali wanthu anyakhi akhala vyaka vinandi mu chalu icho ndipo atolaso mbumba za uko nakumangasu nyumba zawu uko sono ativwilikenge uli wanthu ngati awo bwana wane? even kuno tiliko imwe na ine kuno ku RSA Id amalawi alinazo chifukwa tchakuti ali kukhaliska kuno n Id zawo zikupambana na weneko achalo kalembelo akuti a malawian sono kuli kose kuli mulendo pa chalu iche kweni tasuzga chiyambe chakumangana those people they were trying their lucky kuti angavwilika uli simply they should be told imwe Id yino palije than putting them behind bars

    • Always people get advantages of us Malawi thing you know our story all over we go we are nice people and those one who try to smuggle bad thing out side and their countries are not allowed in those nations get advantages of our passport.marrying our sister’s its not that avoided thing to be called foreign do you remember about lucius Banda song kupupuluma.if they get what they need they vanish

    • Help them having Id is better that the life they stay in malawi without Id, putting them in a systematic wil help our nation plus them they wil be afraid to do evil things

    • Let’s be hard as other nations are hard on us tell me is it easy to have permit here in rsa.How many day are we given when you are entering to be in.have you seen some being followed in Malawi as they are doing in pack station in joz lets be proud of our natio Let’s not spoil our peace it is only Malawi remaining peace country in Africa the likes of Botswana

    • Palije nkhani how many Malawi citizen are outside the country, if there are people love to live in Our countries let them stay as long as they don’t indulge themslves into criminal issues ⚠️

    • That will take miles of years to change someone’s mind its not like a lady you can change her mind when she was in love with someone and you take over to change her mind not to thing of the other guy but its not also all you can change her but some
