This is in addition to 16 dead bodies which arrived in the country for the past two consecutive weeks, bringing the total number to 24.

Mwanza border immigration spokesperson, Inspector Pasqually Zulu  says medical personnel at the border release only four dead bodies on Sunday after finalising formalities on new preventive measures against COVID-19.

“The remaining four bodies are expected to be released Monday when all medical and border formalities are done, ” says Zulu.

Reports from healthy experts indicate that all of the deceased died of natural causes.

“Among the eight dead bodies five are from Mzimba, two from Kasungu while one  is from Rumphi District, ” says Zulu.

Sorry for the bad news of deaths. Mzimba people looks like they are loosing lives more compairing with other districts. Its not only because most of them are in south Africa no! But let us also have a look at what makes them to be in the worst side. Akafukufuku mutapanga zanu mukudziwa inu mudzapeza zeni zeni zomwe zimatibweretsera mavutowa.

Most of these died of other causes other than covid 19, and people living in SA have been dying before covid only that then there was no press coverage. Vehicles carry dead bodies between SA and Malawi in numbers.
