Increase in fuel price affecting taxi drivers in Maputo
Mozambican authorities have accused people from neighbouring Malawi of crossing the border in order to terrorise local villages.
The most recent case saw Malawians accused of being behind the robbery of two shops in Ngauma district, in Mozambique’s northern Niassa province.
They are alleged to have got away with $8,300 (£600) worth of goods.
Augusto Assique, the area’s district administrator, said that those behind the robberies and attacks carefully monitored their victims beforehand.
“For instance, they follow pensioners when they get their pay. They do likewise in the case of traders. They are followed and robbed in the process of buying and selling products. By the end of the day, the Malawian criminals have figured out who to assault.
“Sometimes, they use blunt instruments to carry out their assaults. In the latest robbery in the two villages of Ngauma, they also used firearms.”
He added that it was the police who had suggested the culprits were Malawian.Source: BBC
