The Zimbabwe Revenue Authority will lead the crisis team that plans to clear the congestion over the next 24 hours, Mangwana said. On average, about 25,000 people pass through Beitbridge daily, according to Zimbabwe’s government. The new freight terminal is part of a revamp of the border post that will also include automated queuing and payment systems to minimise human interaction and reduce the risk of fraud and corruption.
