Eleven buses have come into the country from South Africa with 471 self-repatriated Malawians.

Some ten buses arrived through Mwanza border in the wee hours of Sunday with the last one arriving in the afternoon as it had a breakdown in Zimbabwe.

According to Immigration Spokesperson at Mwanza border Pasqually Zulu, of the 11 buses, four will go to Nalikule Teachers training college in Lilongwe.

Three will go to Machinga teachers training college and the last four buses will be heading to Domasi teachers training college in Zomba.

Covid-19 tests, immigration and MRA clearance is expected to be done in all the designated places where the buses are headed.

In a related development, immigration authorities in Mozambique have deported 55 Malawian nationals for violating immigration laws.

Some were found in Maputo, while others were found in Inhambane whilst in transit to Malawi.

Zulu explains that while some had unstamped passports, the rest carried no travel documents with them.

Their deportation comes days after another group of 45 Malawian nationals arrived at Mwanza border after they were also deported by immigration officials in Mozambique.
