A check by Breeze News found a mob of angry traders chasing the Malawian traders in the central business area.
And talking to Breeze News, the Malawian traders complained that it was unfortunate that they are being harassed in such a manner, stating that they had trading permits.
And when contacted for comment, Immigrations Public Relations Officer, Namati Nshinka condemned the act as wrong.
