Morogoro — THE problem of people failing to acquire birth certificates in the country will soon become a thing of the past, as the government is in the final stages of enacting a new legislation that will administer matters related to registration of births, deaths and divorces.

The Ministry of Constitution and Legal Affairs is coordinating the process in collaboration with Registration, Insolvency and Trusteeship Agency (RITA) through involving stakeholders.

Officiating at the opening of a workshop for editors from various media houses on Civil Registration and Vital Statistics (CRVS) in Morogoro yesterday, Minister for Constitution and Legal Affairs, Prof Palamagamba Kabudi said that it was the government’s expectations that the new law will be in place before the end of this year.

The Minister admitted that the current system of registering births, deaths and divorces was not friendly and elaborate enough to the public, something that deters them from registering human events despite their willingness to do so.
