The statement said the Malawi Mission in South Africa has visited the affected Malawians and engaged the South African authorities to guarantee the safety of Malawians.

“Our Mission is also consulting on voluntary return of 105 Malawians who will be sponsored by the International Organization for Migration (IOM),” the statement reads.

According to the statement, government is doing everything that is possible to secure the safety and welfare of all Malawians who are staying in South Africa.
