International Border Posts will finally open tomorrow for pedestrians and private cars paving way for the stranded Zimbabweans who could not access the border control since the restriction on international travel in March.
Cabinet agreed that the re-opening of border posts tomorrow will only be for pedestrian passenger traffic and private cars whereas buses will follow in the first quarter of next year after assessments and in light of required Covid-19 preventative measures.
Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Information Mr Nick Mangwana confirmed the opening of borders tomorrow but however urged citizens to always be on guard against the corona virus.
“We are opening our land borders on Tuesday and naturally many are nervous about it. We need everyone to play by the rules otherwise we will have a catastrophe. Let’s not be tone deaf. Covid19 is real.” He said.
Zimbabwe has five major border posts that is Beitbridge, Plumtree, Chirundu, Victoria Falls and Forbes.
