Malawi immigration authorities say the deportees left Malawi for South Africa on December 7 through Dedza border and were arrested in Tete town.

They boarded a South African open van registration number NT 60780 which was driven by a South African national Rashid Swarea (45) whose  passport number  is A04535897.

Immigration spokesperson at Mwanza border Pasquale Zulu says the deportees are now “in our custody to verify if there are indeed Malawi nationals and also to investigate if they were indeed victims of human trafficking.”

“Once that is done we will consult head office on the way forward,” he says

The immigration officials are advising Malawi travellers to avoid packed in open vans or trucks when going to South Africa.

Is it human trafficking or the people are going there willingly???????? And on what grounds did the Mozambiquecan Authorities deport the people who were just in transit???????? Didn’t they have proper legal documentation??????? From what I have seen one passenger had a passport??????? The matter of the fact is that they were looking for bribes which they didn’t get. If it were women & kids I could have understood but who can traffick Mphongo?????? Mphongo zimakasaka ntchito.

They have been doing this for a long time. They mostly travel without passports these Mangochi people. They pay bribes right through all the way. Something might have gone wrong where they were arrested or they didn’t pay enough bribe.
