Govt tells Malawi former envoys  to return diplomatic number plates

Government has told the country’s former diplomats to return their diplomatic number plates or face the impounding of their vehicles by Malawi police.

Rejoice Chaponda Shumba: Foreign Affairs spokesperson

The ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation says in a statement continued use of the diplomatic number plates which they were using in countries where they were serving as Malawi diplomats is illegal.

“Failure to comply with this notice, any vehicle bearing a foreign diplomatic number plate will be impounded by the Malawi Police Service/or the Road Traffic Directorate,” says the statement in part.

The ministry says all diplomatic number plates should be returned to the chief of protocol at the ministry headquarters by September 30, 2019

We were wondering what kind of diplomats are these, busy avoiding payment of Road taxes, CoF and Insurance. Unfortunately some of these returned diplomats are bosses receiving a lot of money, and can easily afford payment of taxes. One guy is actually a Director at Foreign Affairs. He was in Zimbabwe for almost a decade, and returns home and continues using the diplomatic plates for years now. Is this the kind of diplomats we want? Search me.

People like Joseph Mbumbwe uses a diplomatic passport. Do diplomatic passports extend to Board Chairs? What an abuse of Government resources?

People are given diplomatic passports due to corruption at immigration. Literally useless people travel on diplomatic passports and visas. Malawi is a rotten country.
