National Registration Bureau (NRB) has set up investigations into the alleged registration of minors during Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) voter registration by Temporary Registration Officers.

NRB boss Mackford Somanje said this yesterday in Lilongwe during a joint press briefing it held with MEC.

According to Somanje, NRB registers national ID for all Malawians starting from 16 years above which is different from registration that is conducted by MEC that stipulates that the eligible voting age is 18 years above.

NRB has also revealed that it is implementing an Electronic Birth Registration System (eBRS) which is a separate system from the National ID System to register children from birth to the age of 16 for the issuance of Birth Certificates.

He said NRB system was designed to accept a maximum age of 120 years at the date of registration and acknowledged that in the system there are people whose dates of birth date back to the 1800s.
