In what can be described as walking the talk on public sector reforms, the Malawi government is set to launch the much awaited National Identity Cards – 12 years after such attempts by previous regimes.

Speaking in an interview  ith Zodiak radio, Vice President Saulos Chilima, who chairs the reforms commission, said the first 6,200 cards which were meant for proof of concept are ready for distribution.

“We are done with the first phase in which we registered the President, Cabinet Ministers, MPs, journalists, and citizens in selected areas across the country. This was part of piloting the project. In other words, we are saying the project has started and any day His Excellency the President will launch the project,” said Chilima.
