Kasaila: Matteri s sensitive and diplomatic.

One of the arrested people, Martin Munkhowo from Mzimba, said the security stopped the buses and ordered everyone out of the buses.

“They took us to a police station in Nyambane district where we have been for a week now. Our passports and other personal belongings have been confisticated from us. They are beating us severely so much that one of us fainted yesterday,” said Munkhowo.

He said the authorities have not told them why they have been held there but he suspects it has to do with the insecurity following skirmishes between the rebels Renamo and ruling party Frelimo.

Minister of Foreign Affairs Francis Katsaira said he is yet to get details on the issue.

But he descrribed the matter as sensitive and diplomatic.

He said the government would handle the issue through normal official channels.

Revenging won’t solve the problem at all coz sitingakwirire dzenje ndi dothi lochokera pa dzenje lina rather through discussions and avoid going else where via Mozambique.


Summon to State House, His Excellency the High Commissioner of Mozambique to Lilongwe so that’s he can explain his government’s unlawful detention and abuse of innocent Malawian Citizens.


Don’t use routes where you know there are conflicts or even wars. Just go via Zambia, long route but much more safer.

When these mozs fight each other, they tend to blame Malawi for either supporting or harbouring one of the factions.

We should know by now to avoid using moz roads to go to jubek until peace returns to moz.

We just need to revenge on their behaviour. We should not be allowing them to be attending our schools/hospitals etc

I agree we should start revenging these Mozambicans think we’re stupid


Malawians we r so miserable that any one can easily toss as around like a yoyo. Tanzanians and Mozambicans r the same. We have been sandwiched the only friend indeed we have is Zambia.
