Malawi to engage Mozambique over increased truck burns, murders - report

14 June 2016, 07:17

Lilongwe - Malawi government officials have expressed concern over an increased number of murders involving truck drivers from the southern African country travelling through Mozambique, Nyasa Times reports.

According to Foreign Affairs spokesperson Rejoice Shumba, the government of Malawi was alarmed by the trend and was currently seeking information on the spate from Mozambican officials.

"Our colleagues in Mozambique earlier told us that everything would be alright, that they would protect Malawians and their property but looks like the trend is now increasing," Shumba said.

The announcement followed the burning of three trucks belonging to Malawian companies on Friday, resulting in the destruction of R1.4 million in fuel belonging to the southern African nation.

News24 reported last week that Mozambique's rebel group, the National Resistance Movement (Renamo) had intensified its attacks on vehicles plying on the main highways of the country.

The group, which at first was targeting police units and states facilities, was now attacking foreigners and foreign vehicles that used Mozambican routes.

According to Enwell Kadango, general manager of Malawi's Petroleum Importers Limited, between 20 and 50 Malawian tankers passed through Mozambican routes on daily basis, raising the need for military intervention in the matter.
