“We no longer have crowds at the ministry or any backlog. We have put our house in order with enough staff and booklets. Actually we have people applying for passports right now. Our problem now is people not picking the passports and out staff sitting idle,”Mundeyi said.

Mundeyi noted that they also have passports unclaimed for at their Mbarara and Mbale centers.
