Angry Malawi meets Mozambique over attacks

140

Malawi government through the ministry of foreign affairs is slated to hold talks with Mozambique over increased attacks on Malawians in the former Portuguese colony.

The development follows reports of Malawians being attacked while traveling through Mozambique via road.

Last month, four Malawians were killed while three others suffered gunshot wounds after they were attacked by soldiers in Mozambique.

Barely weeks after the attack, a truck driver told Malawi24 that his life was spared at an hour of death after Renamo forces had blocked the road.

A more recent attack was on Friday when three trucks from Malawi were targeted and set ablaze.

Commenting on the matter, ministry of foreign affairs spokesperson Rejoice Shumba said government is to have a gentleman’s talk with the neighbouring country on the issue of attacks.

“We are yet to have talks with Mozambique counterparts on the matter, as reports we have reveal that truck drivers are at risk of losing lives,” said Shumba.

Meanwhile authorities are still looking for a truck driver working for Zagarf Transport who “miraculously” run from the scene of Friday’s attack.

    • I leave in Mozambique. Let me tell you the Frelimo politics many people are deceived. Frelimo can kill and destroy and put the blame to Renamo. Their soldiers are being killed in large numbers. Zimbabweans, Angolans, Chinese etc are helping them, but Malawians are not. So the only way for them to invite the Malawians to join is to attack their trucks and attribute it to Renamo. This is what is happening. The renamo spokes person has denied this on a press conference and said that they have nothing to do with Malawians. So the govt of Malawi should be careful, they must find themselves drugged in

    A Reason Why Jesus is not God:

    Bible says that God is not man:

    ‘God is not a man’ (Numbers 23:19)

    ‘For I am God, and not man’ (Hosea 11:9)

    Jesus is called a man many times in the Bible:

    ‘a man who has told you the truth’ (John 8:40)‘

    Jesus the Nazarene, a man attested to you by God with miracles and wonders and signs which God performed through Him in your midst, just as you yourselves know.’ (Acts 2:22)‘

    He will judge the world in righteousness through a man whom He has appointed’ (Acts 17:31)‘

    the man Christ Jesus’ (Tim. 2:5)

    The Bible says that God is not a son of man:

    ‘God is not a man nor a son of man’ (Numbers 23:19)

    The Bible often calls Jesus ‘a son of man’ or ‘the son of man’:

    ‘so will the son of man be’ (Matthew 12:40)

    ‘For the son of man is going to come’ (Matthew 16:27)

    ‘until they see the son of man coming in His kingdom.’ (Matthew 28)

    ‘But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority’ (Mark 2:10)

    ‘because he is the son of man’ (John 5:27)

    In the Hebrew scriptures, the ‘son of man’ is also used many times speaking of people:
    (Job 25:6; Psalm 80:17; 144:3; Ezekiel 2:1; 2:3; 2:6-8; 3:1-3).

    Since God would not contradict Himself by first saying He is not the son of a man, then becoming a human being who was called ‘the son of man’, he would not have done so. Remember God is not the author of confusion. Also, human beings, including Jesus, are called ‘son of man’ specifically to distinguish them from God, who is not a ‘son of man’ according to the Bible.

  25. The mozambique wants to take malawi…this has been their dream since the Kamuzu Banda era…i have a full oral history of what happened which is directly connected to why only one political party wins elections in mozambique and why these people are interested in attacking malawians…Malawi should be careful and be ready to consider other altenatives for self defence for whatever falls out of her hands…these ordinary moşko people have guns hidden in big mountains in mozambique…they can destoy malawi.

  26. Fellow Malawians let us accept the reality on the ground, the Mozambiquan route is unsafe to use at this time due to the skirmishes there. The best thing to do is just to avoid using that route. The attacks are happening deep inside Mozambique. If the attacks were to be done on Malawian soil it would have made much sense to engage our colleagues against the vice.

    I doubt it very much if that planned meeting will yield any positive results. The warring parties are bent on denting each other’s images. I wonder whether Frelimo and Renamo will agree to say they should be attacking Mozambiquans only.

    As long as we continue using the Mozambique corridor our safety is not guarranteed. We will constantly find ourselves trapped in crossfire so the best solution is to avoid. It is not wise to be taking chances. Both Frelimo and Renamo are hostile entities who can not be trusted that they will abide with whatever you agree with them.

    I think what our government needs to do now is to guard our border with Mozambique deligently to avoid these undesirable elements from sneaking into our country as they run away from the battle front. These might fuel the crime rate in our country.

  27. This is insane looking at the grounds of their war. How does it involve us? Yet we are keeping thousands and stil others on their way to Malawi as their escape place. Should we also perfom our skills on them? We cant be getting painful messages from Mozambique.settle this fracus before out of hands. Being silent doesnt mean fear but we respect peace on the globe.

  28. Mozambicans Anthu Oyipa Amenewa,bwanji Akulimbana Ndi Amalawi Ngati Kut Kusamvana Kwawoko Ife Zikutikhudza? chonsecho Iwo Akabwera Kwathu Kuno Amayenda Monyang’wa Komanso Mwaufulu.Tionetsana Akangopitiridza Mchitidwe Umeneu,makape,idiots,savages!!!!…….
