The Malawi Police Service has partnered the Asian community in the country in a bid to end street begging.

Speaking during an interface meeting with the members of Asian business community in Blantyre on Tuesday, Senior Deputy Commissioner of Police for Southern Region Arlene Baluwa said police should work diligently in carrying out the exercise.

National Police Child Protection Officer Alexander Ngwata said the police will not only remove the beggars but also protect children’s rights.

Street begging to be stopped.

According to the police, authorities will protect the beggars by finding homes for them.

Ngwata added that this will be done for the beggars’ growth and development.   

On his part, acting Chairperson for Limbe Asian Community, Makbul Latif said beggars brings problems to residents hence communities should stop giving money to street beggars.

“We will encourage them to have that money given to establish institutions that provide vocational training to children,” he said.

  1. Most of u malawians are educated fools, read the story properly, eeee koma yeah, nowander we shall never develop…who said the Asians hav initiated to chase Street beggers, it is the government of Malawi that made that decision in Parliament n they are asking the business owners to stop helping the poor malawians, y do beggers beg from foreigners n not u stingy malawians, what hav u urself done to help d poor in the country… U r jst lazy sitting on ur ass n say foreigners are stealing ur money, y cant u do the same n get rich.. For ur information Asians were introduced in Malawi as slaves by the colonias when they were constructing the African railway across Africa more than hundred years ago, they were poor people with nothing but worked hard to b what they are today. Same as refugees from Burundi are being successful business people in Malawi… Don’t blame ur laziness n lack of creativity on foreigners …the government of Malawi every year cries for investors to come to Malawi, no wonder many leave coz this is a racist country… Do u think Malawi can b better if it cuts ties from doing business with all the countries…yet we cant even produce toothpicks.. Haters.

  7. We have seen developed countries in Africa with so many street kids,beggers even though these countries provide almost free resources ie Housing,Education, Health,Water they receive money every month from the govt once child is born to the age of 18yrs, elderly pension grants, access to govt and private loans so easy and quick but with Malawi our politicians are selfish stealing our taxes sending their daughters and sons abroad for education and better health facilities and at the end they want to chase us in the street. l now know the world is unfair

  11. Let them go back to Syria and Yemen and face Daesh/Talibans militants. They have too much freedom here. Donald Trump is coming soon in the USA and will trample on you.

  12. Beggars are every where even in rich countries. Here it’s lack of social services, poor policies. Other countries have “homeless shelters” for such people. And for the jobless they have “soup kitchens”. Stop putting the blame on helpless victims. Parliamentarians it’s your duty to come up with such bills instead of just making noise at the taxpayers’ expense.

  13. kodi chimasintha ndichani mwama beggars ana amenewa ndi ana opsa.Ndaonapo ine kumupatsa beggar mpamba oyambira business ndikukakwatira amkazi atatu assum atawathandiza.ena amapepha friday mu mashop amwenye ndi abwinobwino koma ulesi

  40. who are these idiots u call the asian community?are they those stupid indians who are making us poor,by evading taxes?these people have not experienced real poverty& i think keeping their big lips shut is the simple thing they can do.what they knw is to inherit property& they should not claim that they are hardworkers.here is malawi,u are born here then be prepared for hustles to survive.think of those whose parents died when they were at tender age.they have no one to look after them.then look at our economy..can malawi have a society without beggers?seriously u cant curb this practice by force

    • there is no irony here mike gama..listen u foolish indian,shameer khan.this is malawi,our home.a simple clarification to my initial comment.it is a plane fact you are the ones perpetuating this whole nosense.you are giving stupid police money to build homes for the beggers but what these people need most is food.as far as i know,there are no proper mechanisms to sustain these peoples lives.its too early& i dont see this happening in the near future.if u think i cant read english,then i guess u are jxt a bunch of rubbish

    • Kod ngat anthu amenewa amakanika kulipira munthu ndalama zolongosoka yet akuwapangira ndalama/kugwira ntchito do you think they can support this idea to the fullest?

    • u r such idiot #jms this news i have show to almost 20 malawian they called u stupid if u think we should go back to our country do u think u can take responsibilty for all those malawian who is r working for asians n u read properly u bluddy bastrad the way u r talking i think u r still leaving in 1960 u should go back to school again n learn how to behaive with humanbee example of me my self i m giving school fees for 5 children in nkhotakota they r also malawin i dont even care what u r talking rubbis and if u dont see anything which is asian doing gud for makawian then u r fool from village grow up i just mean to say that what is in story and that is fact and if u think that we give money to police that means u r also from there who does curreption

    • never did i say u should go back home but am happy with the fact that u admit u are a foreigner here.for every step one take in life,there are pros & cons.the authorities want to get rid of the street beggers for a simple reason to show that things are ok here.get to understand that malawi shall remain poor even without street beggers.she will still rank among the least 10 on the human development index.inequality will still be on the rise.am not saying street begging is a good practice,but still we need to question the timing& reasoning for this sweeping exercise.again,the involvement of the asian community should be questioned.now look,u asked 20 malawians& they called me stupid.who are these malawians?did u question their integrity?are they malawians of good faith?are they not those same people u take into captivity?i dream of a malawi where local people are empowered to take over businesses from stupid asians.do u think u drive our economy?i mean can malawi fall without u?u employ our people& give them peanutes.u make huge profits but u are good at evading taxes.

    • intsted of talking this nonsense here if ydont u take stand to gov. if u think we give peanutes why dont u take stand n who the hell r u ? to telling us we should go back can we tell the same thing to malawian whos r in my country ? and have u seen any indian is not paying taxe here ? give example with proof here

    • the problem with u indians,u focus much on business& not education.thats why u cant understand.i have said& am saying again..never did i ask u to go back home.we are living in a global village where stupid people like u are free to access any market including that of malawi.this globalisation however,has been to many problems we see e.g inefficiencies.mumagwira kuti amwali?kwa amwenye omwewa.yes,u’re giving our people peanutes especially u sameer khan.tell me how much capital your business has?k50m plus?were u suppossed to register your business in malawi?evading taxes does not mean you dont pay tax but u dont pay all the taxes u are suppossed to pay.i knw u& i’ll report u to the authorities sameer

  42. Do u think those beggars they will to be ??? Some of them they have nothing with them , fight fr the country crisis first then beggars coz if u chase them frm towns ur to show them where they’re to get their needs i.e food etc
