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.
