Dar es Salaam — The government is putting finishing touches to an electronic population register through which full particulars of citizens would be gathered for development planning purposes.

The Director General of the National Bureau of Statistics, Dr Alibina Chuwa, revealed last week that the Bureau would use various platforms to educate the public. “We will train the public on how to install our electronic population register application on their phones for them to store and update data especially on newly born babies,” she said.
