Malawi Police  swooped 100 Ethiopian migrants in Karonga near the border with Tanzania who entered the country without authorised documents.

Karonga police spokesperson Enock Livason said the Ethiopian migrants were arrested together with five Malawians who had facilitated their illegal entry.

The five Malawians are Thoko William 22 years, of Yapola village Traditional Authority Mkuwula in Dowa, Shaibu Ajibu 32 of Misigwida village TA Maganga in Salima, Majuto Mwaisopo 30 of Katolola village TA Kyungu in Karonga and Stain Chimanile 22 of Madisi village TA Mponela in Dowa.

“These entrants used two different vehicles belonging and driven by Malawians who escaped and abandoned the cars after seeing the police but were later arrested,” he said.

He said the police managed to intercept the group after communities around Ipyana and Mwenelondo areas tipped them on the strange faces who were moving around.

Livason urged the communities to continue providing information to the police when they come across movement of such people.

Commenting on the matter Paramount Chief Kyungu said “it is high time that Malawi government should take issues of illegal immigrants seriously and put an immediate intervention.”

Kyungu suggested that the government should make agreement with neighboring counties to help in arresting the problem so that a proper way of repatriating the illegal immigrants is discovered.

    Please malawi Government don’t be crazy and sleepy, please speed up issuing of Identity cards to all Malawians and make sure that all citizen show their ids whether in hospitals, admarc, at banks and in all major institutions including at the boarders. If you don’t an identity card is a very important weapon in controlling illigal imigrants coz you dont go by asking who are they but just ask them to provide ID, then questions later. But i understand that our politicians deliberately ignore issue of ID saying its costly but the real reason is because they know that if people have ids vote rigging during elections will not be possible since id numbers wil be used and such cases you cant use Mozambicans to cast their vote. pliz our idiot govt do sth on this………………

    …porous borders, Malawi should address this at higher level with transit governments of Tanzania, Mozambique, Kenya, etc as to do nothing will risk international relations with final destination countries such as RSA and Namibia. We are becoming a common muggers paradise for these people and yet our own citizens are suffering!

  24. BORDER PATROLLER says:

    When the Immigration Dept start using computerized systems on the border post. Using a book and writing in it wont help cos the dept must have a database and to know how many and which foreigners cum to our shore. Does the dept even have the Boarder Patrollers? How long wil u operate like this in a backward manner, this is the err of technology. Hey!!! Ethiopians!!! Welcum to Malawi, the warm heart of Africa. You wil be released soon and hope you find your stay pleasant.

  25. Chindazi says:
