Hie, yes you can get the copy of the birth certificate. I did that for my friends in the UK a while ago. What is needed is your collect name (as per the original doc.), place of birth, birth entry number if you still remember it. Send your details to my email address and will tell you what to do next.

My name is Kenneth, i saw your request. I live and work in South Africa but i frequently go home. You can send me your details i can help you to get the birth certificate. As long as u had it before.

Hi Michelle,

I'm very curious if you managed to get this right...  I have a couple friends who are struggling to get a "Rhodesian" birth certificate....

It was called Rhodesia at time..


Hi there,

I wondered if anybody would be able to help obtain issuance of a duplicate full birth certificate. Unfortunately the London embassy can't help obtain an original copy of the my birth certificate and suggested to get somebody in Zimbabwe to get it for me. 

I am happy to pay for somebody's time, costs and postage to get birth certificate.
