Accreditation nightmare at UNWTO

via The Zimbabwean – Accreditation nightmare at UNWTO

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

by Zivai Maenzanise

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.

    Another typical ZANU-PF event. Those idiots can’t do anything without creating chaos. Except now the world’s media is witnessing it firsthand. Not good for the brand.

      Ngonye, ask yourself why the computer system is in Zambia and not Zim. They cudnt take a chance with people who can’t even produce an electronic voter’s roll.

      Indeed it’s a zanu p.f. fiasco coz a zanu p.f. dude called Walter Mzembi is in charge and he cudnt trust his own country to come up with something as simple as a system that can register a conference’s delegates.

      So, much as you may not like it, it’s a reflection on zanu p.f. and by the way, u can’t expect people who are being inconvenienced on Zimbabwean soil to say “ah, it was Zambia’s fault. “

      Ollah, why is the computer system being hosted by Zambia in the first place? You think the international guests will fault Zambia for a fiasco happening on Zim soil?

      You may not be aware of it but there’s something called accountability. But then again, I forget you are a product of Robert Mugabe’s Zim where everything is blamed on outsiders.

      So, here is how things work in the normal world. The Zimbabwean minister called Walter Mzembi, of zanu p.f. made a decision to have the computer system hosted in Zambia. He must have had a good reason to believe that Zimbabwe was incapable of carrying out that simple task given we couldn’t even produce an electronic voter’s roll. So, Ollah dear, that makes Mzembi of Zimbabwe accountable.

    Hoaaaa are you guyS literate. It said the computer system in Zambia crushed and as such people are coming to Zimbabwe to be accrediated. That means what!!! The system in Zambia is down but the system in Zimbabwe is still operational. Simple…

    Its not uncommon for computers to crash….Zimbabwe however quickly moved in to help. Thus co-hosting the event…..zimbia could not do it alone, so does zimbzbwe……the article is not newsworthy

    Results:

    Bahamas – 3
