Malawi fails to produce driving licences, vehicle documents as system is down

Crisis has hit the motor industry in the country as the government is unable to produce driving licences and other vehicle documents.

Department of Road Traffic and Safety Services (DRTSS) vehicle inspection for issuance of certificate

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.

Malawi! This is the only country where everybody is a transport operator. You buy any kind of vehicle and you put it on the road and it starts carrying passengers without any regulations, minibuses, small cars, Hijets etc all carry passengers in Malawi like in a war ravaged country like DR Congo.
