Over 1,500 Zimbabweans are expected to pass the Beitbridge Border Post this afternoon [Sunday, 19 April] following xenophobic violence in South Africa

The Zimbabwean nationals indicated to President Jacob Zuma yesterday that they wish to return home in the wake of the attacks on foreigners in and around KwaZulu-Natal and Johannesburg this past week.

Two Zimbabweans died in those clashes. 

Zimbabwe's Civil Protection Unit says it's made arrangements to facilitate the arrival and ferrying of people from Beitbridge to their respective places.
