Today marked the first day the South African land borders got opened in more than a month after being closed .The borders had been closed in order to contain the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic in South Africa.

Over the weekend, the Department of Home Affairs made an announcement that 20 of its land borders would be reopening on the 15th of February 2021.

However , the SABC news reported that the South African Department of Home Affairs made a request to their Zimbabwean counterparts .

The deputy Minister of Home Affairs Njabulo Nzuza is reported to have asked the Zimbabwean side to increase the number of trucks moving to the Zimbabwean side on a daily basis.

He is reported to have highlighted that the call to increase the number of trucks moving across to Zimbabwe on a daily basis was made in order to reduce congestion .

A call was made for the number of trucks to be increased from 200 to 400 daily.He added that there is construction taking place on the Zimbabwean side , leading to the decrease in the number of trucks that pass through.

There has been many trucks forming long queues on the South African side which move towards Zimbabwe, hence the call to increase the number of trucks per day.
