Songwe border incharge Yusuf Shaibu said the Tanzanian deputy immigration officer Daniel Magwaza and his assistant John Njirakiza held discussions with Malawi security agents from Karonga at Songwe border.

“They were interested to know the eight Tanzanians who were arrested and their criminal charges following reports that they were arrested for spying on Kayelekera as they wanted to find out whether Malawi was developing nuclear or not,” said Shaibu.

The eight Tanzanians are still on full remand at Mzuzu prison and will appear before the court soon to answer charges of criminal tresspassing, according to police.

Reports say they were found with cameras. The Tanzanian officials returned back to their country same day Friday.

I resent when I see Nebas fighting for Nothing…When 2 Elephants fights,Guess who Suffers…Same goes to our Leaders of today,they can create chaos but eventually you and me will suffer…


Its too early to know whats happening in Malawi for u Tanzanian on bilateral relation which is there,discuss amicably issues concerning a lake Malawi and not nuclear issue. A Lake issue started long way back with Kamuzu Banda, Muluzi, Mutharika, Jb and indeed our current leader where do we go with this issue?yet you are building another issue,why you Tanzanian people. Leave as alone!
