Shooting at Malawi-Mozambique border as tension rises in Mangochi

Malawi and Mozambique nationals continue to face off over a violent altercation  as ne person is suspected to have been shot dead, another one seriously wounded, allegedly by Mozambican forces at Makanjira, Mangochi.

The  incident has been allegedly fuelled by simmering border disputes between Malawians and Mozambicans.

Ministry of Defence Principal Secretary (PS) Chauncy Simwaka said at the 11th Malawi/Mozambique Joint Permanent Commission on Defence and Security (JPCDS) that opened Sunday in Mangochi, they tackled boundary conflicts in Makanjira which followed the World Bank-funded exercise aimed at retracing the boundaries between Malawi and Mozambique.

“We share common challenges in defence and security areas. We are grappling with the irregular migration of immigrants, mostly from the Horn of Africa and the Great Lakes Region who mostly use our countries as a transit to other destinations,” said Simwaka.

“On a regular basis, our countries also deal with cross-border crimes such as smuggling of goods and human trafficking,” he added.

Last year unidentified gunmen in Mozambique h shot dead four Malawians who were travelling to South Africa by road.

The four were among a 24-member group who was travelling from eastern Malawi to South Africa, through the Maputo route.

Malawi army all they know is torturing innocent people in bottle stores,confiscating charcoal and moving around town while in their camouflage uniform.They.don’t know how to protect its citizens.They are a bunch of useless people calling themselves soldiers. Asilikali ndimadziwa ine ndinu aku Zimbabwe. Those are real soldiers,they have a welfare of its people at heart.Shame on MDF.

Commander Supani Phiri deal with these sons of a beach. Mozambique Security Forces do not have muscles to fight us. Imagine that they cant fight even defeat their own rebels. Go konko MDF. Mukawasiya azayamba kutilanda ma town

Mr Simwaka , Address the issue as it is. We are hearing of death…Malawians being shot at..And then your talking about demarcation of the boundaries. ..Smuggling of goods and humans ….My question is what is your ministry doing to stop these killings? How come that its only Malawians who are being murdered?

The Mozambicans has always treated Malawians badly for a long time. The best is to fight them surely they will lose and we will reclaim our London to the ocean which the Portuguese illegally stole from us through the foolishness of the British and Kamuzus weakness to follow up his claim Malawi.
