The Beit Bridge Border continues to be a thorn in the back of South African authorities and the South African National Defense Force, SANDF. If Zimbabwean nationals are not stealing cars from South Africa and moving them to Zimbabwe via the border, they are smuggling counterfeit tobacco to the country.
Expensive cars are being moved via the Limpopo river and when they are caught by the SANDF members, they abandon them and run away.
Once again, members of 1 Special Services Battalion deployed in Madimbo Operational Base confiscated a Quantum, valued at R 150 000.00 which was carrying illicit Express Royal cigarettes valued at R762 464.00. That is a total of R 912 464.00 in confiscated goods.
Meanwhile foreign nationals are blamed by locals for the increasing crime rate in the country. women and children and raped and killed daily, house robberies and carjackings- South Africans have claimed that all this is to be blamed on foreign nationals. The government has however moved to dismiss this narrative, saying that foreigners should be treated with love and respect.
