It is reported that the 21 Ethiopians were helped by some Malawians and police have also arrested them for helping to smuggle these foreign nationals
According to Mkozi the suspects have been arrested after they failed to provide entry permits and they have been opened a case against them for entering the country without a permit, while the Malawians will answer charges of human trafficking
This comes just over a week after police in Mzuzu, in collaboration with the Department of Immigration, arrested some Ethiopian citizens in a similar case.
