State-owned postal and courier services company, Zimpost,is set to introduce e-government services where communities will be able to apply online or offline and collect their official documents issued by the government, that certify holder’s identity.
For those without internet services or mobile devices, they can easily do so using the recently launched Community Information Centers (CICs) which came into existence after converting all national post offices.
E-government will bring convenience to people living in marginalised areas as they will not have to travel to cities and towns to collect their document, this will also improve the activities of public sector organisations.
Speaking at the belated World Post Day Celebrations in Mudzi last week, Zimpost Managing Director Chief Moyo said that as a company they have evolved to meet the needs of the consumer in the digital age.
“Zimpost has taken note of the developments around technology disruption and opportunities that it has spews out,” he said
Currently Zimpost is working towards bringing relief to the people who live in marginalized areas to access the same services that those in urban centres access
“.. we will soon be back with e-government services and our desire is that when you apply for and collect your passport, birth certificates and all other key documents at the post office,” Moyo said.
” We are committed to delivering possibilities by enabling Zimbabweans to access goods and services required in everyday life,”
Zimpost has also revamped their money transfer services from being telegraphic to electronic.
