44 illegal Immigrants have been fined MK25, 000 each or in default serve three months in jail. The accused are from Somalia and Tanzania and have been convicted for either illegal stay or entry in Malawi.

It was the good work of Police and Forestry officials in Mzuzu who nabbed the foreigners in an operation held within the Viphya Plantation in the Northern region of Malawi.

The Officers are also reported to have confiscated four trucks loaded with planks and Amec machines.

Passing the judgement, Mzuzu First Grade Magistrate Lillian Munthali gave removal directions for the illegal immigrants to be deported to their countries of origin after paying the fines.

The Police have vowed to continue flashing out illegal immigrants.
