Le us hope she is a Malawian because Malawi Immigration authorities have been corruptly issuing (selling) Malawian passports to foreigners. I alerted the police a few months ago about someone who was fraudulently about to get a Malawian passport they did nothing and the passport was issued. What I forgot was that police and immigration are one.

Malawi Embassy in India should establish if this woman is a Malawian. Foreigners, such as Nigerians, buy Malawi passports and go about engaging in the illegal drug trade as Malawians. This woman should be severely punished to send a warning message to others who out Malawi to shame
