Malawians gang up against Tanzanian nationals

Tanzania Police

In a tit for tat move, Nkhatabay residents have launched a manhunt for illegal Tanzanian immigrants to force them back to their country.

The development comes at a time when Tanzania has jailed a large number of Malawians for illegal stay in the East African country.

Reacting on the development, Nkhatabay residents have launched a search of Tanzanians who are staying in Malawi without proper documents.

Through the search, the residents have so far found four Tanzanians and one Mozambican who are illegally staying in Malawi and have no proper travel documents.

The residents have since taken the five to Nkhatabay Police so that they should be arrested due to illegal entry in Malawi.

For over a week, the media has been awash with reports of harsh environment created by Tanzanians to other citizens from neighbouring countries.

However, Malawi government is yet to take its action on the matter.

  1. Just stop bros and Sis …..this is how xenophobe start started in South Africa.
    I agree wit all Malawi’s and Zambians that our bros in Tanzania and also Congo have no respect for anothers ….they freely trade across the boarding areas but it’s hard to that in their countries.

  2. It all commenced a long time ago,Dr.H.Banda ignited the furnace of hatred in the hearts of the neighbouring countries by intimidating them that anyone claiming any part of Malawi was playing with fire.He was prepared by then,he intensively trained the guerilla fighters so called MYP to supplement the Defence Force,the neighbours cowered in fear,TZ kept her mouth sealed for a long time while preparing for war,after the removal of Dr.Banda,the following leaders didn’t see through it.

  3. kusowa Chikondi cha mulungu mwini dziko lapasi yemwe antha kutiononga kwa kathawi kochepa kokha yemwe adalenga dziko lapasi aliso ndi mphamvu yomuthamangitsi munthu ” not you, waitenga kt mbamvu imeneo?

  4. its beta to show them action bcoz tz alwayz seen Malawi z blind country and without guns.We know dat malawi haz also policies wat de purpose of them.we r tired of dem continue until our relatives r out in prison.zachison guyz!!!!!

  5. fighting to a man was never a solution before,.The government of Malawi and Tanzania should engage in peace talks rather than folding arms and watch citizens taking the law into their hands . Its really painful what happend to Malawian nationals illigally residing in Tanzania, but digging a pit will never fill up another pit. Africa is one.Let us come together and fight the one common enemy.

  6. Don’t fight your brothers,you are one.Those borders were put by the white man.If you feel like fighting,close your door and pray to him to fight on your behalf!

  7. Enanu chifukwa simunayendepo ilendo mmene akuzuzikira anthu Ku TZ simukadatero akuyenera Ku bwelera kwao anthu kuno Ku TZ tasanduka ma tenernt olima mizimbe akagwidwa ndi zabwino?

  12. Dnt just chase them kill them this is our land these new presidents dnt like peace show them that you are also humanbeings who deserve respect why chase malawians only? Yet here we have plenty of them

  13. Please don’t do that! here Dar es salaam Tanzania they are plenty of Malawian whose work cheap labour and other employed at major private office, so , if this action will continue …also, we can reply like yours but, we will bring all malawian his home without ndalama of Tanzania to go back home !

    1. Usiongee ujinga sawa ndugu zangu wamepigwa kunyang’anyiwa mzigo mdogo wangu kubakwa is it easy u always forget kwamba nanyie u go to our country nawengi wanayenda kufanya umalaya kwetu let them do this is easy solution to ur government

  14. Yes go ahead guys akutiwonjeza akapezeka hand them to police but dont harm eeeee and what is our govt doing on this? bola zao ziluyenda ok but when it comes time to vote they come like bees zopusa.

  16. If they arrested our fellow Malawians for not accessing authorization to dwell in Tz what about theirs who live freely in our country?

  17. I think people need to understand that kukhala kwa Eni without proper documents it’s illegal but let’s leave this issue in the hands of the government, though we use their route to get our Dubai cars but they also benefit from it,or in all this issue it the government to saultout

  18. In any battle one has to understand the repercussion of retaliations……It’s very possible that TZ has deliberately planned this fight to take advantage of our lake. And it’s possible that Azungu are behind this move which might be well calculated.

    1. In the game of chess the best way to defend is to attack but that requires great calculations and understanding any opponent move and it’s repercussions henceforth helping one to visualize the future easily. As a country we’re supposed to understand the TZ hidden agendas and plan beyond them.

  19. Its time to show them we are also an organized country, za magalimoto they will also lose millions if they dare to close the border. You don’t have to fight to be a man but sometimes you have to fight when you are a man

  20. Mantha omwe timapanga amalawi ndi omwe aktisaukisa… Ku tanzania ko sanaganize kt kunonso kuli abale awo??! Inu mukuopa chan…momwemonso ndimmene akukakamirira lake mw…cant u c?

ViVA!!! youth ViVA

  26. tit for tat won’t solve anything at all instead malawi will be on the losing side. ma toyota mukugulawa abwera bwanji kuno poti kodusa ndi ku tz.

    1. But at last I agree with you is indeed abad development . It just needs an urgent peaceful discussions between two nations remains tha only solution to this problem which by tha end of tha day will leave lots of inocent nationals of both sides dead

    2. on another note as a nation malawi we need to come up with other alternatives cause seems our neighbours take advantage of us when it comes to passing by these nations . Mozambique amatipangaso chipongwe.

    3. Autrey gondwe ine ndikugwilizana nazo let them go….Coz zomwe tikuziona en kuchitikilidwa m mmm amwene zosakhala bwino.look Zimbabwe,Lesotho anaona kt maiko awo zithu sizili bwino anakambilana ndi dziko la SA anthu awo azikhala but our country m mmm kaya

  27. Thats why azungu amati africa ndi dark continet. Chomwe tikuzuzilana tokhatokha ndichani?? Evey tym akutanzania amalawi awatele kunoso ndiizi. Phindu lokhala ndi AFRICA UNION sindikuliona. Chomwe tingadziwe munthu sangachoke dziko lamu africa kupitanso dziko lamu africa ndikumakantchedwa folena umenewo ndumbuli. Mu africa muno mafolena ndi azungu, amwenye machina. Shame on us
