9 Mozambicans held in Malawi for illegal entry

15 June 2016, 17:14

Lilongwe - Police in the port city of Nkhata Bay in Malawi have arrested at least nine Mozambicans for illegal entry into the country, reports say.

According to The Times, the suspects were arrested following a tip-off from Malawi's central investigation department.

The men were suspected of using uncharted routes to gain entry into the southern African country.

Ignatius Esau, spokesperson for the Nkhata Bay police, confirmed the development, saying that the suspects were currently in police custody as they awaited their appearance in court.

Two Malawians from the same district were also allegedly nabbed on suspicion of having aided the nine men in their entry into the country.

"Apart from arresting the nine Mozambicans, we also managed to arrest two Malawians, a 65-year-old Jaja Kamanga and Andrew Kanyenda aged 43, for aiding these Mozambicans," Nyasa Times quoted Esau as saying. 

Despite having claimed that they came to Malawi to work as fishermen, the nine suspects were set to appear in court soon on a charge of illegal entry, the report said.

Kamanga and Kanyenda were set to also appear in court facing a charge of aiding illegal immigrants.
