Shipping cars to Zimbabwe

Driving your car from Walvis Bay (Namibia) to Zimbabwe via Zambia

It is a road and rail network linking large parts of Zambia, Malawi, Zimbabwe and Mozambique to the port of Beira on the Indian Ocean.  For businesses reliant on imports operating in the above named countries, Beira Port in Mozambique offers an alternative route to business whose operations are time critical. Beira is just 4 hours drive from the Zimbabwean city of Mutare, which shortens the journey and the time a business has to wait for delivery of imported goods critical to their business.

It is one thing to shipping cars to Zimbabwe,via Namibia. It is the most popular route at the moment. Popularity of Walvis Bay to Plumtree route is its relatively cheaper cost, depending how you look at it.

Now that the dust has settled. It has now been clarified that the intended ban is no more. From the beginning the idea was not well thought. How on earth were the powers in Zimbabwe ever thinking of banning cars less than 5 years? How many of us in UK are driving cars that are less than five years? It was absurd to say the least. 
Now that the dust has settled, what next? Banning left hand drive cars in Zimbabwe is a good idea but statistically how many are there to warrant the effort they are putting to ban them?
