Bribery, Corruption Rife on Zimbabwe, South Africa Border

Zimbabwe's economic crisis has caused Zimbabweans into the diaspora, with South Africa being the biggest destination because of its proximity to Zimbabwe. In the past, the majority of those crossing into South Africa without passports used the crocodile infested Limpopo River as their crossing point. Now, corruption has become so rampant - one can illegally pay their way into the country, with the latest case being the Zimbabwean bus driver who was arrested by South African police after he was found with 16 passports of Zimbabweans.
