‘l am from Chikombedzi and l have travelled over 300km to Masvingo only be told that my documents are not in order , l have to go back and collect a letter from my ward councilor which will cost me a lot of money and time’, said Honest Mlilo after standing in a long queue the whole day .
He continued to say: ‘l think we should have all our documents processed down at our districts to reduce congestion at the provincial office’.
Loice Chinoda who is from Chivi district also added ‘the time that we spent here is long. l came here yesterday and l will have to spend another day which will total to three days. l don’t have any relative in Masvingo town so l am sleeping in the open and it is cold and wet.
