ABOUT 502 Zimbabweans are being held in Botswana prisons compared to only four Batswana held in Zimbabwe. The Deputy Minister of Agriculture, Mechanisation and Irrigation Development responsible for Livestock, Cde Paddy Zhanda, told villagers in Nxele area, Mangwe District recently that Botswana had complained to Government over Zimbabweans entering their country illegally.

Cde Zhanda, who was visiting villages situated along the Botswana-Zimbabwe border ahead of the June 1 deadline that will see Botswana shooting stray cattle that enter that country, said a perimeter fence erected between the two countries had been vandalised by smugglers and other criminals who wanted to illegally enter Botswana.
