Malawian truck drivers being tortured in Mozambique – Kalindo

3

Member of Parliament for Mulanje South Bon Kalindo says Malawian truck drivers are still facing hurdles when passing through Mozambique.

Speaking in Parliament on Tuesday, Kalindo said that Malawian truck drivers are tortured by Mozambican police officers without committing any crime and some are forced to spend over two days at the Malawi-Mozambique border.

“This is very painful and touching. Our fellow Malawians are being tortured by our neighbouring countries more especially in Mozambique but when the same people come to our country they are treated nicely and are at liberty to do businesses,” he said.

Malawian truck drivers passing through Mozambique have faced attacks from robbers. In 2016, a militias attacked a Malawian truck and set it on fire. Drivers have also complained of being delayed at the border.

Kalindo also told the House that some Malawians working and living in South Africa are being ill-treated. The legislator asked government to work with various stakeholders in order to deal with the issues.
