Zimbabwe’s efforts to facilitate trade and travel continue and this has seen the commissioning of Kasambabezi Border Post in the Matebeleland North Province. The new port of entry and exit, situated on the edge of the Zambezi River, 6km north-east of Binga Centre, was commissioned on the 13th of March 2020. The border post has been named after the original name (in the Tonga tribe) of the 2,574 km long Zambezi River. Zambezi River is the fourth-longest river in Africa, the longest east flowing river in Africa and the longest flowing into the Indian Ocean from Africa.

The new Border Post adds to a country’s more than a dozen border posts that are dotted around the borders of the land-locked Sub-Saharan African country. The border posts connect Zimbabwe’s four neighbours namely: Botswana, Mozambique, South Africa and Zambia. Kasambabezi Border Posts becomes the 6th border post to link Zimbabwe and the former Northern Rhodesian counterpart, Zambia. Table 1 below shows a list of seventeen current border posts in Zimbabwe, including the newly established Kasambabezi Border Post.
