President Hakainde Hichilema has assured Zambians living in the diaspora that necessary reforms in citizens’ registration are underway and most of the manual processes are being replaced.

Addressing Zambians living in Mozambique on Thursday during his three Days State visit, Hichilema assured them that government will deal with challenges they are facing in interfacing with their government including, access to identity documents and passport renewals.

He said this will enable citizens living in the diaspora to process their identity documents online.
Hichilema also informed the Zambians in Mozambique that the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) are examining modalities for them to vote from their bases.

Hichilema further asked the Zambians in Mozambique to avail themselves to platforms such as the Public Private Dialogue (PPD) Forum as a way to participate in the development of the country.

“We also encouraged them to participate in the development of the country by looking for economic opportunities in their countries of residence including being importers of goods from Zambia into Mozambique for instance,” he said.

During his address to the Zambians, Hichilema ended by thanking them for being good ambassadors of the country and also asked them to take advantage of the newly announced direct flight by Mozambique Airlines to Lusaka.

“They also asked the government to consider providing for voters in the diaspora,” he said.
