Transporters of three deceased Mozambique nationals have abandoned the coffins on the road on the South African side of the Ressano Garcia border crossing.
Border officials stated that the bodies were abandoned after border officials asked the transporters to produce proper documents and couldn’t.
The abandoned bodies were later moved to a nearby morgue where morgue officials identified them as two men and one woman.
A local daily news paper O Pais reports, reported that “Some of the deceased’s relatives returned to get the required documentation while others were offered accommodation by a nun on the Mozambique side of the border.”
It added that two of the bodies are destined for the southern Maputo province while the third body for neighboring Gaza province.
