Xenophobia: After Nigerians, Displaced Malawian Nationals Leave South Africa

The Malawian Government announced that it had hired two buses to repatriate nationals, who were displaced, following xenophobic attacks on foreigners in South Africa.

The buses left Johannesburg on Tuesday evening and the repatriated Malawians would be back home on Thursday, Secretary for the Department of Disaster Management Affairs, Wilson Moleni, said in a statement.

Moleni said the repatriation was decided after the government received a report from the Malawi High Commission in South Africa that 113 Malawians had been displaced.
