SANDF Helicopters to Watch Beitbridge Border
Written by Mfundo on 4 January, 2021
Home Affairs Minister Aaron Motsoaledi has announced that the South African National Defence Force will be deploying helicopters to watch the Beitbridge border and Limpopo River.
This follows government’s implementation of strict measures to stop people entering the country illegally at land port of entries.
Motsoaledi says people who are trying to enter South Africa with fraudulent documents or falsified COVID-19 certificates are undermining the laws of the country.
