Govt denies forcing Lindera detainees to make own travel arrangements

175

The Malawi Government through the Department of Disaster Management Affairs (DoDMA) has denied reports that it is forcing Malawians who are being kept at Lindera camp in South Africa to make their own travel arrangements.

Some Malawian citizens have been detained at Lindera camp because they don’t have required documents to stay in South Africa and they have been pleading with government to quicken travel arrangements as they are going through hardships such as staying for days without proper food.

Lindera camp: Where Malawian travelers worried.

However, reports say that over 130 Malawians hired two buses from South Africa on their own and they have arrived home. But communications officer for DoDMA, Jeremiah Mphande, said that government did not force the 130 Malawians to travel home on their own but it was their choice.

Mphande said the department in collaboration with the ministry of home affairs has discussed with the South African government on the travel arrangements.

He said: “Those people did not have required documents to stay in South Africa and they were detained and they had to be deported. They were given two options, to wait for South Africa to arrange transport or make their own arrangements.”

    • U have a point there, we pay tax and mind u hater without joloza guyz malawi’s economy would have collapsed longtime ago even before 1975. Kamuzu was a genius to make ties with apartheid sa gvt to grow our young economy by sending labour to them. Kunali theba sizinayambile pano izi. Lets respect those who tried their lucky.

  21. Mmmmm so sad,i always say the best option to deal with aproblem is to find what causes it,mukaona anthu omwe amapita kunja amathawa umphawi,ulova,kuMalawi ntchito ndizochepa,zikapezeka amamlemba pamtundu pawo tsopano mmati anthu tizitani,the fact is noone wishes to die poor,i think its time we find asolution to this by not victimising pple who r already victims,i rest my case.

    • Migration is all over the world, you will be surprised to hear that even south Africans are migrating to different parts of the country, its a thing which started years back and it won’t stop today coz of this setback, anthu are migrating because of different reasons and if you look around right here in Malawi we have people from other countries who are here because of their personal reasons, now do you tell me anthu amenewa ali mu Malawi muno onsewa from other countries ndiosaphunzira? Not everyone goes there to work but end of the day he also has to survive

  28. Kodi deportation ndi disaste
    r? Enawo angodandauka chabe. kundendeko akuti akudya bwinonso kuposa mmene amakhalira mmakwwlala. Adikilire home affairs basi.

  29. If someone is managing to raise about K100000 for transport to southafrica why not investing that amount and see if it can work in Malawi.Many Malawians go to SouthAfrica in the name of porverty but at the core ground they dont ent it.There is no life in diaspora believe it or not.Am not blaming the government on this

    • Iam sorry Shadreck am not that stupid person who quarrel with backward thinking people iwas just trying to give my view on the topic.If you feel like exchanging words with people find others not me.Mind you no matter the economy of Malawi iwill never eat grass as far as there is God.

  30. I hate the sentence “boma linaononga ndalama zambiri” anangowabweretsa anthu osawapatsa chochita. Yendani mzavomereza kuti atsogolire athu amatikholera kwambiri!….na ntchito ndagoma, kuti ukaipeze pakhale chinyengo koma ku Joni amangolembe popanda corruption & they pay much money. Koma ifeyo ma leaders athu unkumangotidyera ndalama (cash gate)……75% are getting rich because of South Africa….

  31. enanu simukuziwa makukomenta,omwe amapita kujoni amakana kuba,kodi wosewa kuti azingokhala mungakhale ndi mtendele akayamba kukubelani.Boma lipeze njila yoti anthu azipeza ntchito.enanu omwe mukunyoza khalani kutali nditsoka,ntchito yaboma kuthandiza anthu ake.

  32. osamati boma linaononga ndalama,,, koma muziti linagwilitsa tchito chifukwa choti amenewotu ndi amalawi ndipo ndalamazo ndi misonkho ya amalawinso ndiye boma silinaononge koma linagwilitsa.

  33. Guys to say the fact lindela is not a right place to stay too long u just talk ur nosense coz u never been that place ukawona chabe kuchuluka kwa anthu ena amayamba misala iam not joking I know the place boma lichitepo kanthu posatengera kuti linawononga ndalama m’buyomu

  34. I know that those people who are making bad comments are those savages ……..that have no ambitions in their lives ……..Muzitaya nthawi ndi ndikumanyoza fand ya Theba pamenenso inu kumeneko muli mundende ya umphawi !!!

  35. Mwayi Poti Ku Malawi Kuno Amadziwa Kuononga Ndalama Pa Zinthu Zopanda Mwina Aziononga Zina Tikuva Koma Akadakhala Ena Akadandila Kaye Chilango Kenako Nkuwapezera Minda Kukathila Kuminda Wazikalima, Ophuzile Kulima Sizo Mangovutika Kwa Eni.

  36. There is a big problem in Malawi! a anthu amakonderana kwambiri, munthu ali ndi certificate & ma points abwino koma osamlemba ntchito ndikumalemba mbuli poti pali ulembale….nde osanena kuti boma linawaongera ndalama dats no sense! the government must provide educated people with jobs

    • I have been here in R.S.A, Cape Town and working for 5years they never ask me for my Certificate and that not even at. once and am paying R1266.90/week for a month how much?, In Malawi you go for an Interview and do it for someone else to get that Job though he didn’t do an Interview so compare that life and why should I panic for coming home and be Jobless?

  37. Mwai wa ku Malawi umagwera kwa abale ndi ma frnds satengera maphunziro . 2much corruption anthu akufuna kumakadzisakira. Boma lichitepo kanthu osamangoba ndalama FUCK !

  40. those people pay their taxes in RSA so the government of RSA is supposed to do all the arrangements for the return of these people….kuno nafenso tili pa Moto Njala..kusowa kwa mankhwala komanso kupita pansi kwa chitetezo. I guess you new the consequences of the risks you were taking

  41. Amalawi kusanva. Boma linayesetsa kuthandiza mpakana kuononga ndalama zambili mbili kukubweletsani kuno simunakhalitse munabwelelanso.then akugwilaninso mkumati boma litikonzele mayendedwe sory kunonso kuli mabvuto inu penzani njila yobwelela kuno.

  42. The bigger picture here is about poverty and lucky of employments….most of malawians are not able to earn a living here so they decide to go in search for jobs out side…these people pay their taxes there and the government will spend alot of the tax payer’s money on people that are developing other countries

  43. But being serious,our government is not doing enough,just imagin people are staying 1 yr @ Lindela and moreover when someone has been caught by police they are puting them in 1 cell with the iminate’s.now its also being said that if u don’t have R1500 u will save 10 months jail after that they will send u to lindela.we know that maybe our government is trying to punish us but in other ways they should also think deply what about if they were their relatives.we use to come here 4 better life,just imagin how many malawians are here,and if we can say all of us we are coming back, will the government be able to give us jobs?think twice,think wisely.concerned citizen.

    • Munakaziwa kuti apples amene mukumugula MK250.00 uja kuno ndi 50cents……komanso mazira mmawasukira aja nkumaona ngati nyama kuno ali masamba sukadamalemba zopusazakozi….Nyani iwe ife kuno ndiye ndingopha bawa tuli pheeee!””

    • kkkkkk so people are in South Africa for food,better life and enjoyment??????kkkkkkk What if you can push life with hope and the help of God here in Malawi cant you find food,enjoyment and whatever is in South Africa?Believe it or not there will be no another Malawi.It is the responsibility of every Malawian to work hard and think of ways of progress coz you guys will be back whether you like it or not and if you dont think enough you will gnash your teeth !!!

    • Kakakaka ine ndili port elizabeth kaya uli joburgwe anthu amwano amadziwa jozi kikiki kuno kuli ma zim ma nigga ophunzila bwino and opandaso mavisa. Ine sindida nkhawa my God has no boundary. Finish and claaa

    • Rodgers you have said the truth. Those opposing you are fools. We shouldnt be wasting money on these people. They do something against the law why treat them as greats, they put themselves in this

    • Rodgers you have my support. We need money for medicine, maize etc. I can’t have my tax constantly paying for transportation of these unpatriotic citizens. You bring them here today, tomorrow they are back in RSA. MG, let them rot there.

    • If you were born wit silver spoon thts Ur bsnss stop talking shit u fake ass bitchz u dnt even a hrt do you think anthu omwe amapita kugwidwa n cum bck thy r fools? Do you thnk amafuna?

  46. No thts. Not true mr sir, just last week I had to pay R2000 for my brother to get a chance to be registered for th ticket to take a bus to malawi! Government stop saying lies, we were told tht th govnmnt can’t afford to transport for th detainees, so everyone must organise R2000 for himself. And tht was very true ncoz only those tht gave th money are th ones who left last week! Alaaaaa

  48. Anawauza kuti apiteko ndi munthu. Why waste my tax money for those who dont pay tax here. Tax wao umadulidwa kumene aliko, so let them wait for RSA to arrange tpt for them if they cannt manage to come using their own money/means.
