Border with Zimbabwe

The path way between Zimbabwe at Beitbridge has become one of the busiest roads in the world and the busiest in Africa, due to black market importers from Zimbabwe and people looking for employment.

According to the New York Times in January 2009 Musina had a alarming shifting population.

It was said 15,000 foreigners, overwhelmingly Zimbabweans, many of whom lived in a refugee camp at the showground or in the streets due to lack of housing.
