The South African borders to neighbouring countries have proved to be a nightmare for authorities over the years. The influx of undocumented foreigners that flock to the country is proving to be causing problems for locals. Reports of cars being stolen and being transported over the borders.
There have been no reports of Zimbabweans, Malawians and Mozambicans are to be blamed for all the cars that are stolen and are found in the borders crossing country. Cars are found daily at the Beit Bridge and Lebombo Borders crossing to Zimbabwe and Mozambique. They are mostly found abandoned and it is mostly the SUV's and big cars that get stolen.
The Beit Bridge border meanwhile is also well known for smuggling illegal cigarettes from Zimbabwe to South Africa.
SANDF soldiers in Limpopo are vigilant with new methods used by the cigarette smugglers. Soldiers of 1 SSB confiscated illicit Remington Gold cigarettes value at R 774 126,00 at Echo Station3 on the Southern side of Beitbridge POE. Confiscated items were handed to SARS/Customs.
Share your thoughts, do you think South Africa should ban Zimbabweans for good or should they leave the borders open?
Are foreigners the ones causing criminal activities here in the country?
