South Africa’s Cyril Ramaphosa moves to tighten its porous borders

South Africa’s President Cyril Ramaphosa has officially launched a new border force in a bid to tighten the country’s porous borders.

The inauguration took place in the town of Musina, home to the busy Beitbridge border post with Zimbabwe.

Mr Ramaphosa said increasing numbers of undocumented foreign nationals had “exacerbated many of the country’s social and economic problems”.
