Twenty Malawians stuck in Zimbabwean prison

82

A group of 20 Malawians are among 28 illegal foreigners stuck in    a Harare female prison in Zimbabwe.

Local media in Zimbabwe reported on Saturday that a group of twenty eight illegal immigrants from some of African countries are being kept in the female prison in Harare.

The media reported that the Zimbabwean Government is failing to deport the group due to financial problem.

According to the report, Terrence Mukupe a Parliamentarian in Zimbabwe for Harare east has since volunteered to assist the Zimbabwe Government in deporting all 20 Malawians.

Mukupe said that it is very sad to hear someone running from his own country because of economic challenges and being locked up in jail in a foreign country.

“It is sad situation where you have people running from their country because of economic situations and are made prisoners here, I will see what I can do to help our government to deport Malawian,” Mukupe was quoted in the media

The Malawians arrested in Zimbabwe are said to have been on transit to South Africa.

  1. My father is from malawi and my mum from Zimbabwe i was born in Zimbabwe, Zimbabwean people are nice we lived happly in Zimbabwe with no problem..Zimbabwean people regards Malawians, Zambians and Mozambicans and as one big family..The only problem is Mugabe and his clowns..He treats even Zimbabweans so badly.. Mugabe ndimunthu woyipa kwambiri, ndipo alibe amzake..chofunika ndikumuchotsa basi..watopetsa.

  2. If it is like that then Zim has no where to go in Africa, just look, how many Zim guys are in foreign African countries looking for the green pasture? This is sad men, May Mugabe help us kkkkkkkk.

  4. Guys u are missing something here. It might be that these people committed a crime one way or the other, so don’t conclude that Malawians are mistreated in Zim. A lot of Malawians are working in mines farms city councils and govt. With intermarriages they r now Zimbabweans. Singers lyl Macheso is of Malawian origin. Culturally there’s Gure.j Visit Zim and see. Bwelani muzawone

  5. Akulu akulu tatiyeni tingo wadandaulila abale wo south africa ndi ziko likutukula malawi takawoneni kumuz pano andu amagona pabwino kufunda sabwino kumanga ma nyumba chifukwa cha joz zitingasiye kupita

  6. Zimbabwean prisons are some of the worse prisons in the world, there are a lot of diseases in their prisons, I hope these guys will be fine and get realised soon.

  7. Mugabe is the one who rebuked their fellow South African for fighting their fellow African so why he allowing these to happen I think he is too bias but yet here in Malawi we have so many zimbambwean working in our country our government are not arresting them

  9. Lets pray for them, inoder to have a better life while they are stil inside the prison. Otherwise zimbabweans they dont take care wel abt the prisoners. They can even kill them.

    • Bt you have bad hearts you guys, idont mean to kill as such. Bt they can even stay there without food for them to starving, as the results they can die. I have been watching tv, isaw them the way they treat prisoners,@God knows

    • lf you say we Zimbabweans we have bad hearts then you are lost.what we know is we take Malawians or Zambians as brothers and Sisters.lf you once stayed in zimbabwe thern you agree wth me.

    • I dont mean all of you, bt most of them they have bad hearts. Shame on you zimbabweans, you dont think what you are doing. We are the same all poor. Bt bsy arrest your nebours. Ever God cant bless you, long time mukuphula njerwa zamoto.muzakhala osauka mpaka kalekale. Bola ife penapake chauta amatidalitsa coz we have good hearts for sure.

    • Cathy don’t take it hard ,zimbabweans a so lovely ,if these ppl want to stay here they should follow legal prosidures and thy cn live happily. Trust me.

  19. SA government is the best in treating illegal foreigners,they take them to Lindela(place of waiting) and provide them with food until they transport them back home as oppose to Zim where they take you to jail ,one of my lady friend was arrested in Zim but luckily she had R200,00 for bribe.

  20. Shaaaaa Malawi again? 500 in Tanzania, 10 Kuwait, 20 Halare and xenophobia await in SA! Passport mk80,000. Zonsezi kusaka life. Mulungu atate nkhondoi mwaiziwa ndipo sitingaimalize lowelerani.

  23. The best way malawi government can do is to send a bus to collect them since the Zim govt asks the inmates to buy bus tickets for themselves a thing very hard for an inmate. By the way the number might be higher than just 20
