Eighty-eight Malawians have been deported from Mozambique for illegal stay in that country.

They arrived at Mwanza border yesterday evening.

The immigration spokesperson at the border Pasqually Zulu has confirmed the development to Capital FM.

According to Zulu, only ten of them had valid passports, while the rest had no any travel documentation.

He disclosed that the group comprise 8 women, one minor who is under 16, and 79 men.

In June this year, 16 Malawian nationals were arrested by Mozambican police for not possessing proper travel documents.

A month before this, 300 Malawians were deported from South Africa, also for the same reasons.

Authorities in the rainbow nation reported that, around 849 Malawians had been detained for contravening immigration laws.

Every year, hundreds of Malawians get deported for illegal stay.

Social commentators believe that many that leave the country seek greener pastures mostly because the country’s economy is in a bad state.
