Our expert says:
Am I correct in saying that you need to buy the medication in SA and then take it to ZIM?
Unfortunately you will need to have a prescription from a doctor who is legally entitled to prescribe medicines in South Africa in order to purchase prescription medication from a pharmacy.
Your best option would be to ask your doctor in Zim to either refer you to a SA doctor, or ask him to arrange for an SA doctor to issue you with a script.
All the best!
