There is an accreditation nightmare at the 20th United Nations World Tourism Organisation General Assembly summit here after the Zambian computing system crashed.

The development resulted in the influx of Zambian nationals and visitors crossing the border to the Zimbabwean side to be accredited, leading to congestion at Elephant Hill, the accreditation centre.
Zimbabwean delegates had to give way to their Zambian counterparts who got accredited first.
Zimbabwean security forces, government heads, ministerial aides, journalists and artists were the most affected.
The slow pace at which accreditation is taking place has affected the deployment and duties of many delegates.
