The district commissioner for Dedza Emmanuel Burukutu and the Angonia district commissioner Paul Sebasiyao met in Dedza on Sunday after the fracas on the border areas which threatened peace of the two countries.

Burukutu said the government of Malawi has made the apology because the MDF soldiers did not follow diplomatic channels when handling cross border issues which affected the Mozambicans.

“The MDF has returned the confiscated charcoal and compensation would be paid on Friday,” said Burukutu.

He said there was need to for the state security agents to be careful when handling cross border issues especially in what he described as hot spot border places.

The DC from Mozambique said the apology was accepted.

He asked Mozambicans living in border areas with Malawi to avoid actions which might provoke situations.

He said Mozambique and Malawi will continue to hold talks when differences arise.

An apology is uncalled for, if the Mocambiqueans disregarded our laws they were supposed to be treated like that. Malawians do suffer in Mocambique when in transit to Zimbabwe and RSA, has Malawi ever asked for an apology from the Moca Government? Mocambiqueans are evil people, they illtreat Malawians in their Country, we have complained to our Government now and again but the illtreatment still continues, Its better that Malawi and Mocambique should fight to rectify the Borders stollen by the Portuguese from Malawi. West of Malawi the boundary is supposed to be the Zambezi Bridge,Mocambique can not beat Malawi… Read more »

Bulukutu should also bring to the attention of the DC of Angonia that Mozambican soldiers are demanding money from Malawian travellers at the border. This is stealing and unacceptable. The practice must stop. Any bus that passes thru Mozambique these criminal security forces demand money from our travellers.

These cowards who guard Ntambo finally have met their match. As I have always said our army has been diluted by Nundwe. Imagine they could even know that they had entered Mozambique. This is an act of transagression. Lucky enough they have been told to kneel and apologise.
