Minister of Home Affairs Steven Kampyongo says Zambia has no option but to implement the issuance of the Electronic National Registration cards.
Mr. Kampyongo says this is because the initiative is a continental program and Zambia has to fit in.
He says his ministry will soon lunch a pilot program before extending it to other parts of Zambia.
He says the new NRC will have security features which will make it easy for Banks and other institutions to ascertain it’s authenticity.
He says his ministry will conduct the sensitization before implementing the program.
Mr. Kampyongo was responding to a question from Kalabo Central member of parliament Chinga Miyutu who wanted to know when the issuance of new NRCs will start .
