Habakkuk Trust has held advocacy workshops to educate communities in Matopo district on how they can get identity particulars.


Dumisani Nkomo, founder of the Trust, said they decided to roll out the programme because they had realised the need for people to have identity documents ahead of next year’s elections.

Most people in the Matabeleland regions do not have identity documents after their parents died during the Gukurahundi massacres of the 1980s.

“As Habakkuk Trust, we conducted two advocacy training workshops in Mabonyane and Zamanyoni. Access to birth certificates became one of the issues that the community wanted addressed in their wards,” Nkomo said.
