SA, Zimbabwe goods smuggling incidents on the rise

The ban on some foreign import goods in Zimbabwe has resulted in the increase of incidents of smuggling by informal traders and private people along the border across the Limpopo River.

The Beitbridge Border Post between South Africa and Zimbabwe is one of the busiest ports of entries in the country which operates on a 24-hour basis.

Travellers who use the border into Zimbabwe are now required to only carry a limited number of some goods. 

Zimbabwe introduced the ban last month and some Zimbabweans and South Africans protested against the move.,-Zimbabwe-goods-smuggling-incidents-on-the-rise-20160822
