Eastern region police spokesperson Utilia Kumanga said the four, including the driver of a four tonner lorry William Chowe and his brother Twaibu Idrissa were on their way to South Africa with other passengers.

“We are investigating as to what really happened, who killed these people and why they did it,” said Kumanga.

She said the bodies of the four are yet to be repatriated to Malawi and those that sustained injuries and the other passengers on board the lorry are still in Mozambique.

The incident happened barely a day before Mozambique President Filipe Nyuse came into Malawi where he discussed with President Peter Mutharika issues of security among other matters.

Kumanga said the people were going to South Africa through Biliwiri in Ntcheu.

There is insecurity in Mozambque as Frelimo is battling Renamo whose leader Afonso Dlhakama is rejecting the 2015 presidential polls through the gun.

The current situation in Mozambique is worrisome. Many Malawians residing in RSA will be deterred from visiting home this festive season due to security concerns. This development will also have a negative impact on air transport as the demand to fly will increase significantly hence push the prices to sky rocket.
