Immigration authorities in Tete have intercepted 38 illegal immigrants in the past three days – mostly Malawian nationals.
According to the spokeswoman for the Provincial Migration Service in Tete, 34 of the 38 are Malawian, twenty-three of whom have already been repatriated.
Amelia Direito explained that the number of Malawians attempting to cross the country on their way to South Africa in search of better living conditions in face of Malawi post-election instability had risen in the last few days.
“Also, two illegal immigrants of Ethiopian nationality are being held in the First PRM Police Station. These ones were acting in collusion with a member of the PRM,” Direito said, making reference to the detention of illegal immigrants who had the support of some Republic of Mozambique police officers.Source: Rádio Moçambique
