THE officer who revealed the existence of a government passport blacklist could be at risk after Registrar General Tobaiwa Mudede made clear he is keen to uncover the identity of what he described as a "worm" that must be "eradicated".

Veteran journalist Violet Gonda was recently stunned to discover that she was on the secret list of Zimbabweans banned from getting passports.

On Monday Mudede summoned Gonda and her attorney to his Harare offices and indicated he would issue the passport within days.

He, however, demanded the name of the officer who revealed the existence of the ‘Stop List', NewZimbabwe.com heard.

Accompanied by six senior aides including the department lawyer, Mudede reportedly described the officer as a "worm" that must be "eradicated".

"The worm I'm talking about … is not a different worm," said Mudede.

"I'm talking about a particular individual who might be mischievous … who will tell people what we don't practice here."
