Salima Sugar Company illegal Indian workers appear in court

Illigal Indian workers at Salima Sugar Company have appeared in court in Lilongwe just a day after Immigration officials pounced on them.

Indians who are accused of working in Malawi illegally

The 67 employees from India who were working at the company without valid official work permits have been formally charged with working without permits.

The government has 40 per cent shares in Salima Sugar Company and an Indian company owes 60 per cent shareholding.

Speaking just a two kilometres away at Immigration department where he had gone for a familiarization tour, minister of Homeland Security Richard Chimwendo Banda warned foreigners to abide by laws when entering, staying and working in the country.

He disputed rumours that the 67 illegal workers at Salima Sugar Company had been released, saying they would face the law.

Those investigating this case need to dig deeper. I have a feeling some got paid to look the other way and if that is the case these illegal immigrants and who ever sponsored them need to come out and tell the truth. If there was corruption involved it is only fair that those involved face the law. Otherwise these illegal immigrants were only taking away our jobs. Where do you think 1 million jobs will come from if Amwenye continue to bring in their people illegally?

You are a racist.
Our country is full of unducated umbuli like you who hate the mwenyes.
My friend, ngati uli ndi nsnsanje, like all malawians have when they see someone prospering, shut your mouth, work hard and make the money.
Every bloody comment from a blacki is mwenye chakuti, ife akuda ndye ma victim.
Grow up in this civilised world.
We all know what abuse these mwenye face in our country, they hold up the economy.
The people who are rinsing our country are the whites and we crave to lick their backsides!

They came to work for a company that is partially owned by the government. Were the government officials overseeing the sugar factory not aware that such a big contigent is arriving. They did not come with tourist visa . The immigartion at the airport must have had a good reason to allow them. When they arrived it was headlines in teh newspapers and there was lot of praise about the investment , but no action was taken at that time by the immigration.. Does everything in Malawi spark only if a minister visits

Raiply too has a heap of reported cases that have not been investigated because Jappie Mhango and DPP have been getting millions of Kwacha from there. The government for instance is losing a lot of money because the company is stealing on daily basis – number of trips of trucks carrying logs and number of logs per trips are always reduced by between 25% to 30% everyday when passing through the gate and the products sold privately or sent to special companies in South Africa and Mozambique.

Our brothers and sisters are always deported from South Africa for a similar offence and some of them have even lost their lives. So, whey should we tolerate foreigners who break our laws? Next, you should move on Nigerians who are busy selling substandard car parts at exhobitant prices.
