MDC-T leader and presidential candidate Nelson Chamisa has said that if he is elected as President, he will revitalise border towns such as Beitbridge. Chamisa said that he will introduce e-government so that the border posts are streamlined to ensure the smooth movement of goods and people. Speaking at a rally in Beitbridge, Chamisa said,
Mnangagwa is going around the world preaching that the country is open for business when in reality border towns are closed for business…I am shocked to see that the busiest border town is dead, closed; hotels and offices; clearing agents are operating from cars. This town used to be an envy of all visitors, but now it is dead.
But once the MDC Alliance is in power, give us less than a month, I am going to introduce e-government which the Mnangagwa administration is not able to do because they view the internet as a regime change agenda…I will address border challenges in one week and promote ease of doing business and this will create the much-needed employment.
