Source: ENCA, 09/01/2021

JOHANNESBURG - Home Affairs Minister, Aaron Motsoaledi, says travellers using fake COVID-19 test certificates will face the full might of the law after 17 fake certificates were discovered.
There are massive traffic jams at various border posts as travellers head back home. Senior Reporter Aviwe Mtila is at the Beitbridge Border post to monitor the situation on the ground.
The minister was at a mobile testing site at Beitbridge border monitoring compliance with COVID-19 regulations on Saturday.
`That person must be returned. He is a fraudster. You can`t just come with your fraudulent documents. The person who wants to enter your country with a fraudulent document is undermining your sovereignty, is undermining the order in your country, is undermining al the laws`, said Motsoaledi.
Motsoaledi says the government has implemented strict measures to stop people entering the country illegally.
He says helicopters are being deployed to borders, to monitor the influx of people into the country.
