The Anti-Corruption Bureau in Malawi has arrested 20 Pakistan nationals and their agents for illegal entry.
The ACB in conjunction with the Malawi Police Service arrested the Pakistanis on Sunday.
According to ACB spokesperson Egritta Ndala, the Pakistanis entered Malawi through Kamuzu International Airport using illegally obtained visas.
The illegal immigrants are being kept at Lilongwe Police Station awaiting remand to Maula Prison and they will be taken to court in due course.
“This is a continuation of investigations by the Bureau on allegations of connivance among public officers in allowing foreigners to use the country as a transit route to other countries,” said Ndala in a statement on Tuesday.
She encouraged all Malawians to report any such immigrants to the Bureau and desist from assisting foreigners to illegally enter the country as that is a threat to the security of our country and its neighbours.
