Police in Karonga district have arrested 26 men believed to be citizens of Ethiopia for entering Malawi without travelling documents.

Karonga police deputy spokesperson George Mulewa said they received information that a certain vehicle had carried passengers who were suspected to be foreigners and they were using Karonga-Chitipa road.

According to Mulewa, police officers erected a snap roadblock on the road.

“Officers who were at the snap roadblock saw lights of a certain vehicle heading to their position. But the vehicle changed direction from Karonga-Chitipa tarred road taking an earth road heading towards Karonga Airport direction,” said Mulewa.

The officers started following the vehicle and upon reaching at a certain place in the area known as Katiri which is in the area of Chief Kyungu, the driver of the suspected vehicle stopped and some people jumped from the vehicle and ran into a nearby bush together with the driver for the vehicle.

Police arrested the 26 suspects and took them to Karonga police station.

They also impounded the Fuso five tonner vehicle which the illegal immigrants were travelling in.

The suspected illegal immigrants whose ages range from 25 to 35 will appear before court very soon to answer the charge of illegal entry.
