ZIM tightens Returning Resident's Conditions, If Driving a Car Should Be Owned At least For 6 Months

We all know that the process of crossing the border with a car is the longest and the most annoying, especially on the Zimbabwean boarder side. Zimbabwean officials are the most annoying and they have got this thing of power abuse, even mere security guard can give you tough, everyone throws his or her weight around, which is something that the Zim government has to look into and make some adjustments. It is very stressing the process of getting with a car to Zimbabwe, it is not just stressing to South African citizens, it is stressing even to Zim citizens.

I understand that they have to be thorough check of cars before they cross over to Zimbabwe, but the things that happens at the Zimbabwean boarder is very annoying. The process of getting a temporary import permit, the insurance, the police stamps, CID check, and luggage check. All these take long and long hours, they are also boys that have a way of ripping you everything, all in the name of helping you. As if that stress was not enough, they have now added to the list of the stressing process that is already in existence.

These things need to be looked at, otherwise this whole process is embarrassing and it shows how the Zim government is so much behind. It needs computers and good technology to reduce unnecessary labour. The time for manual is over, this is the digital time, things have to change, the Zim boarder has to reduce paper work. A lot of people when they think of this stress, they leave their cars behind and rather use a public transport to Zimbabwe. As time goes on, with all that they have added, no cars will be crossing the boarder to Zimbabwe.[0]=AZWIxzVgCso5mx2x0DREzt-drkCYv_u2_t-idBeLPFhNCoTcBSoRGNImxl-AJOH3fK2JIW0JqXCslxpL6o06HQXB4Ipy6-5ONMFbQJv4wMMSrixc1FlLdwd0z3zpeFPIvogp2wyIUW4fOzksvfA6bOSXmcAgwPjRQ2RNIu6dUhrylneqHth8fM_v7PBoNbwKtJo&__tn__=%3C%3C%2CP-R
