IMPORTERS ABANDON CARS AT BEITBRIDGE

Not a single vehicle was cleared today at Beitbridge Border Post as foreign currency duty payments kick in.

“There is a big crisis at the border. This Government is insensitive, even importers who brought in their cars from Messina and started the clearing process with Zimra yesterday have been asked to pay in foreign currency.

“All importers that I know of have abandoned their vehicles because they failed to raise the required foreign currency. Zvadhakwa (there is no more business here),” an agent told the Masvingo Mirror.
To make matters worse car storage companies have with effect from today started charging storage facilities in US$ only. This includes Vice President Kembo Mohadi’s Malindi Transit Shed.
