A magistrates’ court in Rumphi has fined three Chinese K7 million each or serve a three and half year jail term each for illegal mining practices.

Chinese national continue to hit headlines in Malawi for criminality

A Malawian, who was arrested with the Chinese in the district last week, has been acquitted of his charges.

The court has also ordered that the minerals which were confiscated from the Chinese be given to the ministry of Natural Resources and Mining.

The three are Song Chen Jian, 50, Lihuaqi, 37 and Lin Long, 42.

The three Chinese were arrested near Kapiri hills where they have been mining minerals used for mobile phone manufacturing.

The country is also home to a growing Chinese community.

Authorities want to  put to an end to the criminality in the mining industry and want foreign investors who come into this country to work within the confines of the law.

They know that we are very backward people who fail to make use of our natural resources as one way of developing our country. Indeed we must wake up to avoid being explored by foreigners. As somebody said earlier, no foreigner can be allowed to harvest minerals in China, yet when those Bruce Lees come here, they are given red carpet reception. Cry my beloved Malawi…………..

They are not going to jail. They have been fined MK7 million and let them back in street to loot more. This time around they will bribe officials so that they must do their looting without any problems.
