The Department of Immigration Services has tightened screws on wheeler dealers, human traffickers and border jumpers at Beitbridge border post in line with Government's thrust on the ease of doing business and enhancing an optima environment for a safe migration through the country's ports of entries.

This was said by the Assistant Regional Immigration Officer (ARIO) Mrs Memory Mugwagwa during a tour of the country and SADC's busiest port of entry by the parliamentary portfolio committee on Defence, Security and Home Affairs recently.
