Floods force SA to close borders
Three border gates between South Africa and Botswana remain closed due to flooding. They were closed last week after the Limpopo River overflowed.
According to myzimbabwe.co.zw, Home Affairs spokesperson Sam Moremi has advised travellers to use the Kopfontein border post, or go through Beitbridge and access Botswana via Zimbabwe.
"Our three ports of entry namely Groblersbrug Zanzibar and Platjan are temporarily suspended as a result of the floods that have occurred across the country and as soon as the situation is normal all these ports will be opened, the status quo still remains."
The Lephalale municipality in Limpopo has increased the number of flood evacuation centres to four. Municipal spokesperson Victor Monyepao says over 2 400 flood victims are being kept at the centres.
