The truck drivers are reported to have made calls to the Governments of South Africa and Zimbabwe which will help enable the smooth movement of people between the two countries.
South Africa reopened its 20 land borders on the 15th of February 2021.This came after the borders had been closed on the 11th of January as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The closing of the borders had been part of the measures to curb the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Even though the Government is reported to have confirmed that all the necessary measures to contain the influx of people at the border , the eNCA has reported of possible congestion at the border which may lead to humanitarian crisis.
During the festive season in 2020, there was congestion at the border which led to the death of some Zimbabwean nationals.
The drivers of trucks are reported to have made calls for both the Zimbabwean and South African governments to work towards decreasing congestion by ensuring that improvements are enforced on the infrastructure.
