XINHUA NEWS SERVICE REPORTS FROM THE AFRICAN CONTINENT

 

More than 300,000 people cross borders to Mozambique in 10 days 

MAPUTO Mozambique (Xinhua) -- The National Migration Service of Mozambique (SENAMI) said Wednesday that more than 300,000 Mozambican and foreign nationals crossed borders in the past 10 days to spend the holiday season in Mozambique.

The spokesperson of SENAMI Celestino Matsinhe told press that the registered movement makes up some 39 percent of the volume forecast for this period.

“The peak of the movement was recorded on December 22 , when about 44,000 people crossed the borders into Mozambique,” said Matsinhe.

The entry and exit movement, according to Matsinhe, can still be verified, with people starting the trip late. Some are still shopping in South Africa, while others are planning to stay with their families for the turn of the year.

He said conditions were created for the return movement of the national and foreign citizens.
