Zim to reopen land borders in DecemberBy ATTA®
Zimbabwe will reopen six land borders on December 1.
Minister of Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services, Monica Mutsvangwa, said the opening of border posts would be phased in, beginning with Beitbridge, Plumtree, Victoria Falls, Chirundu, Nyamapanda and Forbes.
“The borders will open first to private passenger vehicles and pedestrian traffic as from December 1, while further assessment is being undertaken with regard to preparations for handling public passenger transport.”
She said public border operating hours were being fixed between 06h00 and 18h00 until further notice.
“Curfew hours are being extended beyond the current 20h00, to 22h00 for the convenience of those who are cleared late at ports of entry. This will be subject to gazetting.”
Monitoring teams were dispatched to Beitbridge, Plumtree, Kazungula, Victoria Falls, Kariba, Chirundu, Nyamapanda and Forbes border posts last week to assess their state of preparedness to handle increased human and vehicular traffic.
