Malawians loitering in SA

394

Huge numbers of desperate Malawians have been seen idling around Lindela Repatriation Centre in South Africa after being released from the centre.

Malawi24 understands that the South African Government has stopped deporting Malawians saying that it has no funds to carry out deportations.

Malawians loitering in SA.

However, authorities in South Africa are still arresting Malawians and people of other nationalities who are living in the country illegally.

Once they spend six months at Lindela Repatriation Centre, they are released and dumped around the facility.

One of the Malawians released last week after spending six month at Lindela, Thabiso Phakati, shared his story with this publication.

“I have seen my fellow Malawians around Lindela desperately begging on the streets, they have no any other option,” he said. “I saw women just crying outside Lindela, when you are in Lindela you receive meal once a day.”

Late last year, government said it had repatriated over 2000 Malawians who were detained at Lindela while other detained Malawians made their own arrangements to come back home.

  12. I’am here to blame Malawi24. Plz you must confirm be4 you update your fucken stories. Of cause those who were in Lindela ‘ve released but it’s not in such situation as you are saying. Some of them are now in their working areas as here in Durban tilinawo kuno anafotokoza momwe zinalili. Nkhani zokhudza kuno ku SA zisiyeni as a result mudzapangitsa kt anthu anu amene tilikuno ku SA tivutike zenizeni akunowa akamaona nkhani ngati zimenezo.
    You are forgetting that some of Malawians akuthandizika from their fellow relatives who are in SA. As of now ku Malawi tikudandaula kt kuli mavuto osiyanasiyana monga azachuma, njala mongotchulako ochepa. Now kupezeke kt mtundu wa a Malawi ulikuno tikadzazane kumeneko….! Mavutowo angzafike pati? Sindinathyole m’nkhwani, ndangodutsa chabe…..!!!
