There have been a number of reports of South African robbers pouncing on defenceless Zimbabwean bound buses. These are easy targets with guaranteed loot as diasporans will be visiting their families for the holidays. You can outsmart these robbers by travelling cashless.

In the old days that meant simply travelling with a bank card and then doing a withdrawal in Zimbabwe from a Visa/MasterCard enabled ATM. Thanks to our economy being in tatters such withdrawals are now impossible.
