South African Drivers to Pay $200 Before they can Access Zimbabwe through Land - Home Affairs.

The government of zimbabwe has shown its preparedness to reduce the accessibility of their country through land by introducing a new fee for drivers conveying passengers into or through Zimbabwe.

This is exactly what most South African citizens have been clamoring for a long time ago but our government paid deaf ears to the demand.

In a recent statement released by Home Affairs Minister, Dr. Aaron Motsoaledi who gave some of the reasons why we still have backlog of vehicles in our border with Zimbabwe.

He said that the backlog was as a result of a new law which require drivers to pay a whopping sum of $200 in cash before they can drive into or through the country.

The new law has stirred up so much controversy as people are wondering why Zimbabwe will initiate such laws when they citizens are busy living and working in other countries across Africa without interference.

According to a report issued by SAfm news on Twitter:

"Home Affairs Minister, Dr. Aaron Motsoaledi, says the backlog at the border is due to a new toll implemented by Zimbabwe that requires drivers to pay up to 200 US dollars in cash before entering the country."
