SOUTH AFRICAN POLICE USE CHOPPER TO INTERCEPT SMUGGLING INTO ZIMBABWE
South African police in northern Limpopo Province, using a helicopter, have intercepted groceries being smuggled into Zimbabwe across the Limpopo River which separates the two countries, a few kilometres away from the Beit Bridge Border Post.
The smugglers, who fled into Zimbabwe, were using a donkey cart to transport the items, including groceries, police say, adding that the origin of the items is still being investigated. No arrest has been made yet.
Cross-border smuggling incidents have increased since the Zimbabwe government introduced bans on some imports from South Africa earlier this year.
Last week, police found a vehicle which was reportedly stolen in Durban in KwaZulu-Natal Province, being pulled by donkeys across the Limpopo River.
