Rights body tells Malawi govt to formulate migration policy

Rights activists, the Human Rights Consultative Committee (HRCC) has told government to come up with a sound migration policy to protect Malawians from exploitation by foreigners.

Mkwezalamba: Policy needed

HRCC chairperson Robert Mkwezalamba said this on Friday when the committee appeared before the parliamentary committee on International Relations.

“A lot of Malawians are facing abuses in the hands of foreigners due to the absence of the policy,” he said.

He said in some instances, some foreigners come to Malawi to take away jobs and land from unsuspecting Malawians.

The chairperson of the parliamentary committee Patrick Bandawe said parliament would push the government come up with the migration policy.

Fifty five years of independence but still without a sound citizen empowerment immigration policy. Fellow SADC countries have such policies which are geared at citizen protection.where by certain jobs and businesses are only for citizens . Not like here where a Burundi runs a business of selling beans, ground nuts ETC and does not employ any Malawian citizen in the business SMEs should be only for Malawians to run.
