Home Affairs Deputy Minister Obedinga Mguni was reportedly blocked by Beitbridge Border Post officials from accessing key information.
He was left incensed over lax security during his recent visit to Beitbridge Border Post, The Sunday Mail reported.
Mguni confirmed to The Sunday Mail of “an incident” that took place during his tour of the border.
The publication said Mguni refused to disclose full details of what transpired, saying it was a “sensitive security issue” which he has since forwarded to the Joint Operations Command.
“The visit by the Deputy Minister opened a can of worms because he was concerned by lack of security at the border and he disagreed with some of the officials on how they were conducting operations,” said a source.
“The officials also appeared to be attempting to block him from accessing some information and he was not amused.”
Mguni visited the border two weeks ago to get an appreciation of the security situation and an appraisal of operations at the port of entry, which is one of the busiest in the region.
