Bullets coach Ramadhan risk being arrested: ‘Working illegally in Malawi’

Immigration department of the Ministry of Home Affairs and Internal security has confirmed that Bullets F.C Head Coach Nsazurwimo Ramadhan risk being arrested if he continues to work in the country because he does not possess a work permit.

Ramadhan : Working without permit

Ramadhan : Working without permit

Immigration Public Relations Officer Martha Gonondo told MBC Radio that Ramadhan is only allowed to live in Malawi just as a visitor hence a need for his employers [Bullets] to process his work permit.

“Our records shows that he just came here in Malawi for a visit and not to work.

“Our office is therefore asking his employers [Bullets] to work on his work permit and if that is not done, he will be deported,” warned Gonondo.

Gonondo could however not be drawn to comment on the grace period given to Ramadhan and Bullets to process the much needed documents.

But in reaction to the news, Bullets F.C Chairperson Kondie Msungama denied that Ramadhan is full time employed by Bullets.

Msungama said the coach and the club is working on the same to make sure he gets the papers.

“We haven’t employed him until his work permit is finalized but as of now he has just been extending his days of staying in Malawi which means he is not employed and never signed any employment contract with us” he said.

According to the Bullets Chair, Ramadhan’s involvement in football is part of cheering which is in line with the papers he has at the mean time.

  2. Kulibe kantu says:

    Can Immigration Department act? The guy is coaching and BB is saying he is not working. What do you mean? RSA has now changed laws. The South African government does not issue work permits in South Africa. U have to apply in your country.
    Ramadan is living illegally. Can Immigration Department must act. In fact, let them move from company to company to check on foreign nationals who are working illegally. They have to deported and the company employing illegal immigrants should be prosecuted.

    I would have thought he is in bleach of immigration law by working as a visitor, and as such, shouldn’t he be arrested and deported? Bata have questions to answer ie, what checks did they do to check his legality to work?

  26. pierra says:

    This is gross mis-use of the legal government work permit scheme. It is not upto the state to push for the law to be upheld. And the due process of law requires the said person to be outside the country before the case can even be considered; for him to apply whilst in the country means that the law had been hoodwinked. It means the reason for coming to Malawi was illegal, it was not to visit but to work illegally.

    Bullets should be fined and the culprit sent packing or risk being thrown in jail! Laws are meant to be followed by everyone.

    I wanted to write the same comments written by Ujeni, analyst, Arthur G Mtambo and others. Malawi govt is abig joke. We have allowed foreigners to stay and operate illegally in this country. Go to Karonga, Mzuzu, Lilongwe, Blantyre and you will find a lot of Nigerians, Somalis, Burundians, ma chinese even amwenye operating illegally here ndikumazuzaso a malawi ndipo police mkumawaikiraso kumbuyo. Our land policy is also weak. Anthu awa agula malo mkukhazikika. Tsiku lino tidzadzuka mkuuzidwa kuti sikwathu dziko titagulitsa. Inuyo a immigration bwanji osapanga za amenewa kaye bwanji? Sout africa inakhwimitsaso za maukwati coz amabwera mkukwatira the stranded sisters kenako akapeza ma licence thru them mkuwataya. Inuyo a immigration ndi anyerere takuonani. Ndale ku Malawi kuno sizikutithandiza. Tiyeni tikonde dziko lathu a Malawi. Ku mchesi mpaka msomali adasankhidwa mfumu, koma zoona? Ine ndadabwaso kuzindikira kuti nyuma yanga ndazunguliridwa ndi ma Somali ndi ma burundi. Immigration dept yopusa zedi

  43. Wayne Kazima says:

    Fultime or part time he needs work permit. And we don’t need a signed agreement to confirm he is working , inference from conduct can confirm that.

  44. zanga phee says:
