Refugees heading back to cities

…questions over millions of kwacha allocated

…Police warn Malawians harbouring 

Refugees that were relocated to Dzaleka refugee camp are heading back into the cities, in what would be a mockery to the exercise, The Investigator Magazine can confirm.

Malawi Police Service spokesperson Peter Kalaya confirmed in a statement that refugees were returning to cities, describing as a puke on the country’s “solid foundation of rule of law.”

Questions are also being raised how funding of between K250 million to 750 million for the relocation exercise was used as some junior officers claim they never recieved their allowances while public facilities such as Maula Prison and MDF vehicles were used without payment.

Information we have gathered is that Senior officials at the Ministry of Homeland Securty are being stonewalled by the Malawi Police Services who were funded the amount.

Homeland Security Minister Ken Zikhale Ng’oma said he will get to the bottom of the matter but refused to comment further.

According to Kalaya, those making back to the cities were being supported by Malawians.

Meanwhile the Police Service has formally interdicted two of its Criminal Investigations Officers accused of attempting to recieve bribes from some of the refugees to give them back their property.

The two, Assistant Superintendent Eluby Mbewe and Inspector Molly Makomera were arrested and charged with Corrupt Practices by a Public Officer. Their interdiction is on full pay, according to Police communication we have seen.
