Immigration arrests 9 foreigners over illegal stay

Immigration officials in Lilongwe have arrested nine people for illegal stay in the country and for fleeing from Dzaleka Refugee camp in Lilongwe.

Immigration Department spokesperson in central region Eric Banda said the illegal immigrants were picked from Kawale, Mchesi, Biwi and City Centre among other areas.

“Two of them were arrested for staying in the country without proper papers. They are all Nigerians,” said Banda.

He said the other seven fled from Dzaleka refugee camp.

“These people can be dangerous. They need to be at Dzaleka. Most f them are military people, they are soldiers this is why they should be confined at Dzaleka,” said Banda.

He said most of them needed security checks and vetting before they are allowed into the society, saying they can be a security risk to the nation.

Somalis and Ethiopians come to Malawi from their respective countries to seek asylum so too Burundians, Rwandese and people from the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Most supposed to be illegal immigrants are trafficked by the authorities who are paid to stop their entry ,(the police and immigration officers they know when they are to arrive,the port of entry,and the intended destination and mode of transportation. We are in need of a professional police unit to police the police.

Sananyeme, akananyema sitikanaziwa izi. How many Burundians and Somalians are owning shops in our suburbs? All this is nonsense, to hell with our immigration, police, home affairs, foreign affairs and the presidency.

Ethiopians Rwandese coming here to seek asylum? Why don’t they go to their neighbouring countries? That is array nonsense. They come here because they have heard of the laxity and failure of security enforcement just like happens in a banana republic. Kulitola dziko basi.
