A total of 300 Malawian Citizens who were staying in South Africa without proper documents have been deported back to Malawi.
Deputy National Spokesperson for the Immigration Department, Wellington Chiponde said half of the deportees arrived in Malawi Tuesday through Kamuzu International Airport.
“We have currently received 150 Malawians that were deported from South Africa and we are expecting another 150 to jet in Wednesday,” Chiponde said.
He added that about 849 Malawians have been detained by the South African authorities for contravening immigration resident conditions.
Chiponde urged Malawians to follow immigration rules whenever they decide to go and live in other countries in order to avoid deportation.
“As Department of Immigration, we are urging Malawians to observe immigration regulations in all countries. Holding a valid passport is not enough but citizens should familiarize themselves with immigration requirements in all countries they are travelling to,” he advised.
