Malawi court sentenced 16 Ethiopians to 6 months in prison


MALAWI (Zodiak Online) — In Rumphi, the magistrates court has sentenced sixteen Ethiopian nationals to six months in prison for illegal entry, further worsening congestion at the prison where inmates already sleep on top of each other due to lack of space.

Eighty others escaped after noting that they were being surrounded by police officers.

This year alone, over 500 illegal immigrants have been sentenced to Malawi prisons after being charged with illegal entry.

The 16 imprisoned Ethiopians are all male and their ages range from 18 to 29.

    This is one example where the Ethiopian Tax Payers money is being used by woyanes to bribe the soulless African scumbags to harass the Ethiopian refuges! Tyrant Meles is determent to make the lives of Ethiopians Hell, in and outside of Ethiopia.

    These African dictators show their strength on the poor, defenceless and traumatised people on the face of the earth.

    How on earth can one justify the imprisonment of refugees who are fleeing from persecution and who are asking for help?

    Does the Malawi dictator expect to receive a phone call from a refugee in Ethiopia who is desperate for his life to tell him that he is coming to malawi to seek refuge? ofcourse not!

    where is the the United Nations refugee agency in this?

    Why Malawi continuously persecuting Ethiopians is beyond us. One of the worst assault on human right is denying a space especially in a prison setting like what is happening to Ethiopians in this case and what happened to Hutu prisoners after the civil war in Rwanda. It is also beyond us that we sit complacent and complicit having a comfortable lives and never reaching out to affect change.

    Malawi is among the world’s least-developed countries. The economy is heavily based in agriculture, with a largely rural population. The Malawian government depends heavily on outside aid to meet development needs, although this need (and the aid offered) has decreased since 2000. The Malawian government faces challenges in building and expanding the economy, improving education, health care, environmental protection, and becoming financially independent. Malawi has several programs developed since 2005 that focus on these issues, and the country’s outlook appears to be improving, with improvements in economic growth, education and healthcare seen in 2007 and 2008.
    Malawi has a low life expectancy and high infant mortality. There is a high prevalence of HIV/AIDS, which is a drain on the labor force and government expenditures. There is a diverse population of native peoples, Asians and Europeans, with several languages spoken and an array of religious beliefs. Although there was tribal conflict in the past, by 2008 it had diminished considerably and the concept of a Malawian nationality had begun to form. Malawi has a culture combining native and colonial aspects, including sports, art, dance and music.
