Citizens to Keep Paying for Passports in USD

The government has decided to maintain passport fees in foreign currency, even after introducing the new ZiG currency, despite public calls for making this critical document accessible in the local currency.

Finance, Economic Development and Investment Promotion Deputy Minister, David Kuda Mnangagwa said the government has a contractual obligation with the company that helped to establish the electronic passport system that passport fees shall be charged in foreign currency.

The new e-passport was introduced in December 2021, with the cost of an ordinary passport set at US$150 and an emergency one set at US$250.

A Lithuanian company, Garsu Pasaulis, partnered with the Government to introduce the e-passport.

Following the introduction of ZiG last month, Zimbabweans have been asking why the government continues charging passport fees in foreign currency while arresting people who buy forex on the streets.

Controversial hip-hop artist Holy Ten is seething after fans recently stole his phone during a performance on stage.

Holy Ten Pelted Again: J'burg Show Shut Down Prematurely

  • WhatsApp masterclass

The rapper, born Mukudzei Chitsama, revealed this on his Facebook account. The rapper was at a performance, and as usual, he interacted with the fans.

Lately, Holy Ten has been enjoying diving from the stage so he can crowd surf.

Holy Ten was rocking the crowd recently, and mid-performance, he decided to surf and have fun with revellers.

Some people at the show decided to capitalise on this. As the fans moved him in the air, he focused on rapping and floating.

Someone swiftly searched his pockets, which Holy Ten did not think of before jumping, and they took his phone. When Holy Ten realised he had been robbed, it was too late. The phone was gone.

He once went viral last month after pulling the stunt with no t-shirt on. The fans carried him atop as he sang for them.

However, the stunt of crowd surfing has terribly backfired on him.

The rapper wailed online:

Izvi ndozvimwe zvikutongondisvota. Ndiri busy kurova stage dive imi murikuba iPhone 15 Pro Max yangu.”
