Seventy-six Malawians fleeing xenophobic attacks in South Africa have arrived in Malawi.

The group, however, arrived at the Njamba Freedom Park in Malawi’s Commercial Capital, Blantyre on Thursday, September 19.

It should be noted that the Government of Malawi hired buses to bring them home.

Moreover, one hundred and thirteen Malawians were displaced by the attacks.

Seventy-six expressed willingness to return home.

According to Malawi’s Secretary for the Department of Disaster Management Affairs, the group will be provided with temporary shelter.

Equally, the government will provide the group with travel logistics to their various destinations.

Meanwhile, the government provided basic and moral support through its mission in South Africa before the repatriation begins.

Malawi among other African countries has been adversely affected by recent attacks in South Africa.
