Malawian migrants found in container lorry in Mozambique

BBC says the immigrants had been travelling in the lorry for three days before they were intercepted in the capital of Gaza province, Xai-Xai.

Police spokesperson Carlos Macuacua said the detained migrants told authorities they had been assured of employment in South Africa.

Macuacua said police are working with the Mozambique migration authorities to repatriate them to Malawi.

“This is an illegal immigration case. They hold no identity cards and they were being carried in inhumane conditions,” said Macuacua.

He said immigration authorities and the national investigation service are working together to find the masterminds of the illegal immigration attempt to South Africa.

As long as they had food and shelter in mud grass roof which is did not leak

Even when Bakili Muluzi introduced free primary school
You thought he was mad
This is where our problems originated from
