ED, Ramaphosa meet in Beitbridge
Written by Skyz Metro FM on October 6, 2023
President Emmerson Mnangagwa is set to meet South African President Cyril Ramaphosa in Beitbridge today for bilateral talks.
Presidential Spokesperson Mr George Charamba said the two presidents’ meeting on the Zimbabwean side will allow President Ramaphosa an opportunity to appreciate the Beitbridge border facelift.
Zimbabwe, which upgraded its side of the border post at a cost of US$300 million, is South Africa’s biggest trading partner.
Millions of documented and undocumented citizens also reside in the neighbouring country.
In 1995, the late Presidents Robert Mugabe and then South African President Nelson Mandela met in Beitbridge on the occasion of the official opening of the New Limpopo Bridge, Africa’s first build-operate-transfer project.
