Malawi army now ordered to patrol borders and curb smuggling

LILONGWE Malawi (Xinhua) -- Malawi President Peter Mutharika has ordered the country’s army to guard all the border points and impound vehicles smuggling maize, tobacco or other prohibited commodities. 

A statement dated March 27 signed by the Presidential Press Secretary and Spokesperson Mgeme Kalilani said the order is with immediate effect.

Malawi shares boundaries with Tanzania to the northeast, Mozambique to the south, and Zambia to the west and northwest.

The country has for the past two years suffered floods and adverse weather patterns that affected production of maize, the country’s staple food.

Malawi also relies on tobacco as the chief forex earner followed by sugar, tea and coffee.

Many Malawian farmers trek with their produce to neighboring countries where they are offered a higher price than they get back home.
