Minister of Home Affairs Stephen Kampyongo has expressed sadness with some sections of society that have continued to politicize the issuance of the National Registration cards NRCs.

Mr. Kampyongo says the exercise is for every Zambia to acquire the important National document which will enable them to effectively participate in the governance of the country.

Speaking when he paid a courtesy call on Northern Province Minister Chungu Bwalya in Kasama district today, Mr. Kampyongo said that upon attaining the NRCs, Zambians will not only participate in governance issues but also benefit from programs such the social cash transfer program and the farmer input supports program FISP among others.

He has however appealed to Zambians that do not own NRCs to actively participate in the exercise.

He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”
