30 Malawians arrested in TZ for illegal stay

Tanzania Police

At least 30 Malawians are in police custody in neighbouring Tanzania for entering and staying in the foreign country without proper documents.

According to a reliable source close to Malawi24, the 30 Malawians got arrested on Monday November 14.

The source said the Malawians received a call from the Malawi High Commission in Tanzania to meet in order to discuss issues to do with their stay in the country.

But upon arriving at the agreed meeting point, the Malawians were told to board a vehicle though they were not informed of where they were going.

They were however shocked when they later arrived at the country’s immigration offices where they were told to fill in forms.

In the afternoon of the same Monday, other Malawians in Tanzania heard that the group had been arrested for staying in the country illegally.

The Malawians are now being kept at a police station in Segelea in Tanzania and are expected to appear before court any day from today to answer charges of illegal entry and illegal stay in a country.

Meanwhile, other Malawians are already in jail in the same country after they were found guilty of the same charges and were slapped with six month jail-terms.

  4. its so Amazing with what happens in Tanzania because even here in Malawi we have Tanzanians too and not only 30 more than 150 people arrested there and I was there day before yesterday they called to attend foreigners meeting upon reaching there all were taken to jail so what kinds of pple are these Tanzania

  8. The problem is Malawian leadership and not Tanzania. it is quite sad that people they only know Malawi as a country, and they doesn’t know the president of Malawi he never put his country on the map how long are we going to depend on our neighbours the leader ship of Malawi is the main cause of abuse every where Malawians can go.

  12. Its not just 30 people arrested its more than 150 people at once so how is going on may the malawi govt help our friends sufferinng here in Tz shame on that

  13. Too bad. How can the Tanzanian government ask poor Malawians to pay a fine of about K100,000.00 to K150,000.00 when they are paid little? How is our government going to help the poor arrested Malawians. Do people without proper documents pay fine?

  22. Brave police of TZ they know to distinguish their citizens from foreigners besides colour skin, this is just a wake up call to the MW/ gov that national identities are needed very much to avoid such things.

    1. Mr Mkomboni don’t show me your stupidity you would have understood my opinion,iam not happy at all to see a neighboring country behaving in such a way, don’t we have such a law here in Malawi, your brain is very shallower to see what is going on, Malawi is being attacked by its neighbors in all angles you will see if TZ keep quite Mozambique will come on then Zambia

  24. We have alot of Tanzanias doing bussines here in MW, and some of them are even working here, we are keeping them here though they don’t have proper documents, but we can’t ask them, we have too much respect in foreigners, but they disrespect us whenever we go to their countries. Last time malawian were also beaten there, can’t we revenge this? We are not fools!

  25. To be honest, Zambians have never experienced such a thing in Malawi and I don’t even see it happening unless you are talking about some specific, individual incidents, which can happen anywhere else in the world. Tanzanians have done this to malawians twice now when we have a lot of swahilis walking loose in our cities. I know a lot of Zambians here in malawi and we just live with them like brothers and sisters. I have lots of family members in Zambia too

    3. Bwana Austin Kumwenda it seems Sara Amiyenji Malikhebu sanapiteko ku Tanzania that’s why she call me imbecile, but kwa anthu amend timapita ku Tanzania its not common kwa anthu aku Malawi kugwidwa or deported from Tanzania, that’s why I said amenewo angokumana chabe ndi tsoka, eti mkaziyu kumapanga ka comment kake kakuthakoka, usamaleretu iwe Sara tikhonzatu kukuyalutsa and you can ultimately hate me. Be careful with these social medias osamangoyankhula ngati kuti mwina ukufuna kuberereka, dont be sonorous Sara.

  31. Jst send them back home any country iz host pple frm other countries wthout the so called proper documents but Malawians ar the first victims wen it comes to thz situation.God bless malawi
