Home Affairs deploys more personnel at Beitbridge

Friday, July 27, 2018

In anticipation of higher traveller volumes ahead of elections in Zimbabwe, the Department of Home Affairs has announced the deployment of additional staff to the Beitbridge border.

In total, 37 officials have been deployed to Beitbridge from 26 July to 3 August 2018 to beef up existing human resource capacity at that border. 

“The announcement of additional staff deployments comes within the context of the determination and commitment of the Department to ensure delivery of efficient and professional immigration services as part of our responsibility to facilitate the smooth movement of people, goods and services during this period,” the department said in a statement. 

The election will be Zimbabwe’s first national election since the recall of former President Robert Mugabe last year. After stepping down in November, President Mugabe was replaced by former Deputy President Emmerson Mnangagwa. – SAnews.gov.za
