Homeland Ministry talks tough on human trafficking

The Ministry of Homeland Security has warned illegal immigrants involved in human trafficking and smuggling that the law will be enforced to bring sanity.

This comes after the arrest of Ahmed Muhammed Kondo, an Ethiopian national and his wife Deborah, who are suspected of being traffickers at Dzaleka Refugee Camp.

Minister of Homeland Security, Ken Zikhale Ng’oma, has disclosed that 31 trafficked immigrants have been caught thus far and are being kept in cells that have razor-sharp barbed wires and high walls.

“In accordance with international laws, a refugee camp should not be located close to a town. That is why we have identified a place in Chitipa District to relocate Dzaleka to the border, where it should be,” said Ng’oma during a press briefing in Lilongwe.

Kondo has a history of committing the same crime.

Dzaleka Refugee Camp is situated 42 Kilometres away from Lilongwe town and was originally designed to accommodate refugees within the range of 8,000 to 12,000.

However, it currently hosts over 52,000 refugees.
