Concerns over humanitarian crisis at Beitbridge border

Johannesburg – Dozens of people waiting to cross to South Africa from Zimbabwe have been turned away at the Beitbridge border post.

Most people did not have proper documentation while others produced fake Covid-19 test certificates.

There have been major delays as thousands try to cross the border.

This is raising concerns about humanitarian and health crises at the country’s busiest land border.

With the second wave of Covid-19, authorities are worried about this being a super spreader event for the deadly virus.

While thousands of law-abiding immigrants are waiting their turn to cross to South Africa legally, others are just strolling through the multi-million rand border fence.
