Police in Malawi’s Karonga near the border with Tanzania have intercepted 100 illegal Ethiopian migrants who entered the country without authorised documents, a spokesperson said Tuesday.Karonga police spokesperson Enock Livason said the Ethiopian migrants were arrested together with five Malawians who had facilitated their illegal entry.

“These entrants used two different vehicles belonging and driven by Malawians who escaped and abandoned the cars after seeing the police but were later arrested,” he said.

He said the police managed to intercept the group after communities around Ipyana and Mwenelondo areas tipped them on the strange faces who were moving around.

Livason urged the communities to continue providing information to the police when they come across movement of such people.
