The Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (Zimra) has announced that the Victoria Falls Border post would today be closed to pave way for the signing of the United Nations World Trade Organisation (UNWTO) Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between Zimbabwe and Zambia, co-hosts of next years UNWTO conference.
The Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (ZIMRA) would like to advise its valued clients that the Victoria Falls Border Post will be closed to facilitate the signing of the United Nations World Trade Organisation (UNWTO) Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), Zimra said on its twitter page yesterday.
Presidents Robert Mugabe and Michael Sata of Zambia are expected to sign the MOU.
In the statement, Zimra said Victoria Falls Border Post will be closed from 6am to 3pm.
To compensate for lost time it will be open from 0600hours for 24 hours on Monday 28th of May 2012 and will run from Tuesday 1500hours to 1800hours Wednesday 30th May 2012. The border post will thereafter revert to its normal operating hours, Zimra added.
The prestigious tourism event is expected to draw 186 UNWTO members to Victoria Falls and Livingstone next year.
The government has said the event presents Zimbabwe with a unique opportunity to rebrand its image after years of international criticism.
