SURVIVORS of the devastating Cyclone Idai which hit parts of Manicaland, Masvingo and Mashonaland East early this year have been allowed the chance to replace lost identity documents for free.

This was confirmed by Registrar General Clemence Masango in a recent courtesy meeting with Zimbabwean editors and online content producers.

The worst tropical storm to hit the country in decades caused death as well as massive damage to infrastructure and the environment, with the loss of valuable documents adding to the victims’ misfortunes.

The documents being issued are birth and death certificates as well as national identity cards.
