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.
