POLICE ARREST 4 FOR AIDING ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS

By Our Reporter

Four Malawians are in police custody for allegedly aiding 26 Ethiopians to enter the country without valid documents.

The suspects are identified as Wongani Chipeta, James Kambelengondo, Andrew Mwanyongo and MacDonald Mbewe.

Rumphi Police spokesperson Noel Kamchenga says some well-wishers tipped them of some vehicles suspected to have carried the suspects.

The vehicles were reportedly heading to Hewe Trading Centre from Kanyenjere boarder. This prompted the law enforcers to mount a temporary road block.

“Two vehicles approached the roadblock with high speed. Police blocked the road but they disobeyed the signals and sped off,” says Kamchenga.

He adds minutes later, other vehicles also approached the roadblock with high speed.

They also ignored the stop signals, forcing the police officers to shoot in the air but to no vain.

Later, they shot the tyres; making the vehicle unable to go far.

The suspects are expected to appear in court soon to answer charges of aiding illegal immigrants in the country once investigations are completed.

Meanwhile, police have impounded three vehicles and two motorcycles which the suspects used.
