The Immigration Department has arrested over 67 Indian nationals at the Salima Sugar Factory who were working without permits.
Confirming the development, Immigration Departmentâ€™s Central Region spokesperson, Elack Banda, said those arrested are male Indians who came into the country mid June and have been working without employment permits.
He said this is against section 21(1) of the Immigration Act , which require foreign nationals working in Malawi to have an employment permit.
The arrests come barely a day after Minister of Homeland Security Richard Chimwendo Banda paid a surprise visit to the factory and discovered that 60 Indian nationals were working without work permits as required by law.
