LESOTHO MAKES STRIDES IN CIVIL REGISTRATION-RABOLOETSE

Berea, Aug. 10 — Ministry of Home Affairs said since the launch of the national civil registration, at least 60 percent of the newborns are registered within the prescribed period of a day or within a year.

This was confirmed by Ministry of Local Government and Chieftainship Affairs, Home Affairs and Police, Principal Secretary (PS), Mr. Tumelo RaboletsI during the commemoration of Africa Civil Registration and Vital Statistics (CRVS) day held at Assumption Primary School, Teyateyaneng on Thursday under a theme, “The potential to increase coverage, improve quality and timeliness of data through digitalization of civil registration systems”.

Mr. Raboloetse said this marks a significant progress within a country which used to witness births of children or even pass on without being registered within the African civil registration books, adding that 70 percent of the under five children are uniquely identifiable and registered in their systems.
