Police in Rumphi are keeping in custody 45 Ethiopians for allegedly entering the country illegally.

According to Rumphi Police Spokesperson Sergeant Tupeliwe Kabwilo, the illegal immigrants were arrested on Tuesday, February 14, 2023, at Bwengu on M1 Road.

Kabwilo said Police were told that a motor vehicle registration number KA657 Canter Lorry, coming from Karonga going towards Mzuzu was carrying  45 illegal immigrants suspected to be Ethiopians.

This prompted the officers to rush to the said place.

“Upon stopping the vehicle, the driver did not comply and instead, started cruising fast, but police officers followed the vehicle until at a point where the driver abandoned it and took cover,” said Kabwilo.

He said currently, all suspects are being kept at Rumphi police station and will appear before court soon.
