Kumar has summoned Dr Anthony, a dentist based in Lilongwe  to India to be quizzed why he let a worker at his clinic to be removed  by Immigration when his permit expired.

The Indian High Commission accused Dr Anthony of  acting in bad faith, suspecting he might palm greezed Chief Immigration Officer Medi and Minister of Home Affairs Grace Chiumia to influence the removal of the Indian.

But Dr Anthony argues he followed the proper immigration process after his worker resigned and he noticed the Immigration Department according to procedure.

Kumar is not taking the matter lying down, wants Dr Anthony to face the music in Indian and drag Malawi Chief Immigration Officer into matter, as he wants India government to pursue the matter .

“It seems Kumar has some personal interest in the matter,” a source at the Indian High Commission in Lilongwe said.

Meanwhile, Rumphi East Member of Parliament (MP) Kamlepo Kalua , has said Indians like any other foreign nationals should repect the laws of the land and  there should be no diplomatic immunity to law breakers.


Of late indigenous Malawians have been complaining that Malawians of Asian origin and Indian businesses are treated with kid gloves when it comes to opportunities,  trade and tax rules.

There is a new wave of lobbying for fair trade practices to all Malawians and investors.
