Drugs and other illegal stuffs are being sold at Lindela Repatriation Centre in South Africa where thousands of Malawians are detained, Malawi24 can reveal.
Malawi24 understands that Indian hemp (Chamba) is sold like hot cake at Lindela, a facility where the South African government locks up illegal immigrants.
Sources told Malawi24 that in the facility they call the illegal drug Swazi or Nazi.
A Malawian who was recently locked up in the facility and spoke on condition of anonymity said that there are so many illegal activities happening at Lindela.
“A lot of illegal activities happening in Lindela, chamba and other drugs are sold in the facility. There are a lot of fights among the inmates there too,” said the source.
Malawi24 could not establish how these illegal drugs are smuggled into the facility because there is maximum security at the repatriation centre.
Meanwhile authorities at Lindela have denied knowledge of any illegal activities happening at the facility.
