SOUTH Africa’s Minister of Public Works and Infrastructure Patricia de Lille has reiterated that they will complete the fence on the Beitbridge border with Zimbabwe within a month to restrict the movement of people.
This is part of the measures implemented by the government to fight the Covid-19 pandemic ahead of the lockdown on Thursday. De Lille told the media in Cape Town on Wednesday they were on track with the plans and the contractor was already on site. She said the work began this month and the contract should be able to finish the work by next month.
“With regard to the Beitbridge border, the contractor is on site and has eight teams responsible for each 5km segment of the 40km of the fence that is being replaced. Site meetings are taking place weekly with a daily technical meeting taking place each day,” said De Lille
