More illegal cigarettes and automobiles are being imported from South Africa and Zimbabwe. Limpopo's police chief, Thembi Hadebe, is concerned about smuggling near the Beitbridge border.

There is a plan in place to combat crime.

Hadebe aided in the suppression of criminal activity on the N1 between Musina and the Beitbridge border station. The purpose of the operation, according to her, is to reduce smuggling. In Musina and the region surrounding the Beitbridge border post, the police and other law enforcement authorities ran an anti-crime campaign. Increased smuggling of products into the country prompted the initiation of the programme. Stolen automobiles are included among the stolen commodities.

Merchandise is being smuggled in from South Africa.

It has been reported that the products are being smuggled from South Africa into Zimbabwe across the border. Hadebe also observed that there were barricades at the border checkpoint to prevent people from smuggling contraband.

"The purpose of these obstacles is to prevent unlawful border crossings between the United States and Zimbabwe. All stolen automobiles that cross the river do so illegally, and there is a substantial amount of illicit cigarette traffic on this road. A $3 million Mercedes-Benz which attempted to cross the border was confiscated "I was told,

Taxi drivers dislike the operation of the Beitbridge border.

Taxi drivers have expressed concern over the stop-and-search operations, according to SABC News. They believe this proposal will negatively impact their businesses. The number of commuters decreases, according to Eric Ndadza, when such measures are taken to combat crime. "We are unable to travel to Johannesburg due to this operation, which is a major inconvenience. When law enforcement arrives at the taxi stand, our customers flee and hide in the bushes "said Ndadza.

More than 100 individuals have been arrested for a variety of reasons as a result of stop-and-frisk operations.

SIU confirms that COVID-19 contracts were illogical for Beitbridge Border.

The Special Investigative Unit (SIU) has weighed in on the probe into disputed Department of Public Works projects at the Beitbridge Border. In a statement issued on Tuesday, the unit revealed that two companies had lost more than R40 million in contract-related revenues.

As part of the national government's strategy to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, contracts were awarded. As soon as it became apparent that the fences were poorly constructed, however, the tenders gained notoriety. In addition, the SIU discovered that more than half of the funds for the Beitbridge Border fence construction had been paid to the contractors in advance.
