Call for electronic marriage registration

Online Desk |  7 months ago | local

Home Affairs and Cultural Heritage Minister Kazembe Kazembe says the registration of marriages should be done electronically, to curb corruption in the issuance of marriage certificates. 

Speaking at the Chief Justice’s dinner event in Harare, Minister Kazembe said the soon to be launched Integrated Electronic Case Management System ( IECMS) by the Judiciary, should incorporate the Registrar of Marriages, following reports of people using fake marriage certificates to commit crimes.

The Judiciary is expected to launch the IECMS in May this year, which will use information communication technology to file and track cases, while linked to all stakeholders in the justice delivery system.
