Two senior immigration officials were in the country on Friday to inquire on eight arrested country men suspected to have been spying on Kayelekera Uranium mine in Karonga.
Songwe border incharge Yusuf Shaibu said the Tanzanian deputy immigration officer Daniel Magwaza and his assistant John Njirakiza held discussions with Malawi security agents from Karonga at Songwe border.
“They were interested to know the eight Tanzanians who were arrested and their criminal charges following reports that they were arrested for spying on Kayelekera as they wanted to find out whether Malawi was developing nuclear or not,” said Shaibu.
The eight Tanzanians are still on full remand at Mzuzu prison and will appear before the court soon to answer charges of criminal tresspassing, according to police.
Reports say they were found with cameras. The Tanzanian officials returned back to their country same day Friday.
