South Africa deports 150 Malawians

Shabby-looking looking Malawians landed at Kamuzu International Airport in Lilongwe from South Africa Wednesday morning after they were deported by the government there.

Malawians being sent back home from South Africa for illegal stay

Assistant airport police spokesperson for KIA Jeffrey Malepula said the 150 men were deported from the Rainbow nation because of lack of working documents and residence permit, among others.

“They look really pathetic because they have been in detention at Lindera camp for over six months. Some of them cannot even remember when they took a bath,” said Malepula.

He said the majority of the deportees are from Mangochi and Machinga and did not have transport money to get them to their respective homes.

Malepula said the deportees, who were transported to Malawi in a chartered plane operated by Global Aviation of South Africa, did not have Malawi passports.

He said they used a collective passport issued at the Malawi consulate general in Johannesburg.

I like the part that says “Some of them cannot even remember when they took a bath”

Mavuto ena awo. Kuthawa kumudzi kuti mwina tingapezeko moyo wofewa koma ayi tere. Life is cruel and tough.

These people went there in search of employment.
We have a small number of very rich Malawians living it up ( most of them on stollen money), while the majority are languishing.
The migration of the poorest to S Africa is an indication of how sick our economy is, and it won’t get better as long as we tolerate corruption.

As long as they are from Mangochi they will go back by January.

Next time you try to go back, try to obey the countrys (South Africa) immigration rules, otherwise zikawedzani nsomba kunyanja. The one good thing though, mwakwelako ndege, isn’t it?
