They were arrested in Zomba after raid by Malawi Police Service and the Department of Immigration on Thursday .

Immigration public relations officer, Martha Gonondo, said authorities released three after they were found to have valid temporary residence permits.

According to Gonodndo, the other two— Salvador ArturMuianga and Arao Elias EnosseMauaie—they were working (as supervisors) on a visitors permit which is contrary to Section 37 (B) of Immigration Act.

She said the operation was carried out last Thursday after intelligence was received.

Gonondo said steps are taken to remove them from the country Saturday through Nayuchi Border Post .

CLN is a partnership between Mozambican state port, a rail company called Portos e Caminhos de Ferro de Mocambique (CFM) and Vale Logistics Limited—a Brazilian company.

There was no immediate comment from the company.

Illegal working is not a victimless crime. It defrauds the taxpayer, undercuts honest employers and cheats legitimate job seekers out of employment opportunities.

Immigration should check Dairiboard Chichiri as well. Too many Shamwaris there. Are they all legal?

Many Malawians were arrested and then deported in UK for working with visitor’s visa. Every Tuesday there an aeroplane landing at KIA with Malawian deportees from South Africa. I wonder why a reputable company like Vale or CLN could bring Mozambicans to come and work here without proper documentation. It’s absurd. It’s all silly. It’s stupid on the part of Vale.

Good work from the Immigration Department. At least you now know what you are doing or what you are supposed to do.
