Business operators plan vigil to force authorities to enforce relocation of refugees to Dzaleka



Small-scale business operators have disclosed a plan to hold a vigil on 16th march 2023 at Capital Hill in Lilongwe to force the Malawi Government to relocate the refugees and asylum seekers back to Dzaleka Refugee Camp in Dowa.

The spokesperson of the grouping, Victor Khwangwanya, told Nthanda Times on Tuesday that they have been engaging the Ministry of Homeland Security to ensure the court order is enforced, but to no avail.

Khwangwanya said this is the reason they resolved to hold a vigil to force the government to take action.

He accused President Dr. Lazarus McCarthy Chakwera of failing to stamp his authority on the matter.

Last year, the court ordered all refugee and asylum seeker to return to the camp and government set February 1, 2023, as the last day for the relocation.
