By Staff Reporter

BEITBRIDGE-Zimbabwean authorities at Beitbridge Border Post on Tuesday morning received 280 undocumented migrants who were deported from South Africa.

South Africa deported the 280 Zimbabweans who were being held at Lindela Repatriation Centre in Krugersdorp.

The deportation follows an escape from the centre by an undisclosed number of inmates which forced authorities in South Africa to quicken the deportation of the Zimbabweans

An immigration source at the border confirmed the arrival of the undocumented migrants in Zimbabwe

Those deported would have either breached immigration laws such as overstaying resulting in the cancellation of their permits or crossing borders without valid travel documents.
