UNHCR Monique Koko said she does not understand why the refugees are refusing to relocate to a camp which has all the facilities including a functioning clinic and school.

“This is a puzzle to us because where they are there are no facilities because it is not a refugee camp but a village,” said Koko.

Koko however said over 1800 refugees have relocated to Luwani where she said they have been provided with all necessities including food and tents.

She said the relocation exercise ended on June 30.

Koko said UNHR together with its sister organisation, Unicef will also ensure that Luwani refugee camp has potable water.

Mozambican refugees are flocking to Malawi following slirmishes in their country between ruling Frelimo and rebels Renamo.

The Mozambican neighbours need to heed the advice/instruction from the Authorities.

But may God forgive you ‘Racist’ for your unloving comments towards the Refugees. Do unto others as you would love them do unto you remains the golden rule to be always followed by everybody everwhere even as our Lord Jesus Christ who created us together with the Heavenly Father and the Lord Holy Spirit commanded us.

Send the fuckers back to their god forsaken country! We have enough problems of our own to worry about!

We do have our own problem but there’s no need for such reactions.
I’d say if they are refusing the given help then it’s their loss really. You can take a horse to the river but you cannot force it to drink the water.To that point we can now go back to Malawi problems…
