Some Malawian nationals are stranded in Zimbabwe as the Malawian Embassy there is failing to fund their transport costs after being deported.
This has been revealed following the arrival of 32 deportees at Mwanza border yesterday.
This is a group that managed to source funds for their return home and the embassy just facilitated their repatriation exercise.
According to the Acting immigration publicist for Mwanza border, Sophina Chibenthu Mwenda, the individuals were in transit to South Africa without proper travel documents using unchartered routes.
Out of the 32 deportees, 9 are from Mangochi, one from Zomba, one from Mulanje, one from Ntcheu and 20 are from Machinga district.
Currently, some are still at the Harare prison waiting for financial assistance to return home.
