On his Twitter page, South African citizen and Operation Dudula volunteer @MEB40122141 made the following allegation, emphasizing the need of protecting his country's citizens: "Driver's licenses issued in Zimbabwe are recognized in South Africa but not the opposite. A valid driver's license from South Africa, however, will be accepted in Zimbabwe. The Dudula enterprise has acquired a delivery bicycle, but no one knows where the keys are ".
Operation Dudula agents contacted the riders of these delivery bikes in Johannesburg and demanded to see proper identification. Delivery bike drivers presented Operation Dudula members their identification and permits, and the group quickly learned that the permits were not legitimate in Zimbabwe but were recognized in other countries due to the fact that they were issued on letterhead as international Drivers Permits. A second fraudulently obtained license was found by Operation Dudula's investigators: that of delivery bike riders.
Due to the possibly risky nature of the permit, the members of Dudula have taken possession of the delivery bike's keys. How can it be that the bearer is denied the freedom to ride or drive anywhere inside Zimbabwe's borders? When other South Africans saw the tweet after #OperationDudula members retrieved their bike keys, they praised the group for doing the right thing by taking the permit and returning the keys.
