President Off to Botswana

President Mnangagwa travels to Botswana today where together with that country’s President Seretse Ian Khama and Zambian leader Edgar Lungu they will assess progress made on the construction of the Kazungula Bridge.

The bridge will connect eight countries.

It is situated where borders of four countries – Zimbabwe, Botswana, Zambia and Namibia – meet. The bridge links Botswana and Zambia across the Zambezi River at the confluence with Chobe River.

Kazungula bridge is a multi-national project on the North-South Corridor within Sadc whose construction will bring economic benefits for the region.

It is anticipated that completion of the project will result in reduced border transit time. The project will also result in increased traffic, reduced time-based transport and trade cost.
