Malawi deports over 100 Ethiopians  without right of abode

Malawi has this year deported over 100 Ethiopians who were satying in the country without a right of abode, a senior government official has said.

The illegal lags from Enthiopia arrested in Malawi

Speaking during the International Migrants Day on Friday in Lilongwe, principal secretary for Home Affairs Beston Chisamile said the deportation was done after consultations with the Ethiopian government officials.

He said last year, the government repatriated over 300 Ethiopians back to their country of origin.

They are intercepted in unchartered routes as they head to South Africa where they seek greener pasters.

Chisamile conceded that illegal immigrants are held in police cells with criminals as they await deportation processes to complete.

“We are working with our cooperating parners to establish migrants holding centres,” said Chisamile.

Medicins san Frontier officials said there are 150 migrants at Maula Prison in Lilongwe awaiting deportations. Malawi prisons are faced with overpopulation of inmates who include the migrants.

Why do you intercept them? Let them pass. Otherwise you intercept them, you put them in prison and start feeding them for months before you depot them instead of feeding our sick.

We have the so called Human Rights organizations in our country but they are mum on our prison conditions. I have never heard about an allocation on an annual budget for building new prisons to replace the filthy colonial ones. Our Legislature is also mum about this torture by government to its own people in prisons. Mwamangidwa mangidwapo inu a china Mutharika, Gondwe, Kalirani, Atupele, a Kabwira ndi enanu. Ena mwakomokera mu ndede Tsiku limodzi lokha, ma HBP mbwe mbwe mbwe. But you cant still learn on those pathetic conditions and improve on these Human Rights conditions. A person in… Read more »
