Crisis has hit the motor industry in the country as the government is unable to produce driving licences and other vehicle documents.
The Road Traffic and Road Safety Services directorate has not been able to produce the mandatory motor vehicle certificate of fitness because of the break-down of Malawi Information Traffic System.
Minister of Transport and Public Works Ralph Jooma said the system server broke down following power surge after a black-out.
He said the government has since lost K147 million due to the failure to process the documents.
The directorate is the second revenue earner for the government after the Malawi Revenue Authority (MRA).
Jooma said the government is now in the process of replacing the server and business will be back to normal in two days time.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
