The Namibian Government has launched an 'e-death' notification system to curb death certificate fraud and to track future deaths. The project, a collaboration between the Health Ministry, the police, the Namibia Statistics Agency, Unicef and Home Affairs, seeks to expand the digital civil registration and identification system in the country. A report on the allAfrica site notes that Prime Minister Saara Kuugongelwa-Amadhila said the system would enable the deceased's family members to electronically verify their identities. She added it would also provide identity verification for births and marriages.
