The reopening of some registration centres in the ongoing national registration exercise is expected to bring a sign of relief among residents in Malawi’s Ntcheu district.
The development follows a public outcry as some citizens were left out without getting registering as the exercise was being rolled out in the district during second phase of the exercise.
Long queues, bad weather and faulty machines were some of the hiccups that resulted in others failing to register in the district.
Speaking to Capital FM, Ntcheu National Registration Bureau (NRB) Assistant District Registrar reminded stakeholders to raise the much needed awareness so as citizens that were left out area get captured in the registration database.
Peter Kacheche however warned for possible prosecution of people that will be found attempting to deter the program.
"This is a national exercise and as such people who were left out previously should go to registration centers and get registered.
Despite that there are few centers we have reopened, but we believe that people in the district will use this opportunity and get registered," explained Kacheche.
The NRB is conducting the exercise across the country in phases and expects to wind up in December this year.
