800 MOZAMBICANS ROUNDED UP
A TOTAL of 800 Mozambicans were rounded up in Mutare and Chipinge in a massive crackdown spearheaded by the police and the Department of Social Welfare last Friday.
Some of those caught up in the blitz were asked pay fines while others were referred to camps for displaced Mozambicans after a through screening exercise.
In Chipinge last Friday, in a dawn swoop, more than 500 Mozambicans were screened and the majority of them were sent to Chambuta Camp in Chiredzi.
