34 aliens nabbed

11 December 2015, 14:30

Nyasa - Immigration authorities in Mozambique have confirmed the deportation of at least 34 Malawian immigrants believed to be trafficked to South Africa, Nyasa Times has reported.

The deportees, who were arrested on December 7, were travelling through the Dedza border when they were nabbed in Tete town.

The immigrants, two of them women, were allegedly being transported by a South African national when they were detained.

Pasquale Zulu, an immigration spokesperson at the Mwanza border, confirmed the arrests and said officials were attempting to ascertain whether or not the deportees were indeed Malawian nationals and if they were victims of human trafficking.

Malawians have since been warned to avoid being transported in packed vehicles when travelling to South Africa.

In August, News24 reported that hundreds of illegal migrants, most of them from Ethiopia, remained detained in Malawi after they failed to reach their destination, South Africa.

The report, which quoted a humanitarian organisation, Doctors Without Borders (MSF), said the migrants were detained while on their way to look for greener pastures in South Africa.

Statistics from Malawi-based Child Rights, Advocacy and Paralegal Aid Centre (Crapac), showed that large numbers of African migrants passed through Malawi en route to South Africa, the report said.
