Dedza Police Station and Calomue Police Station of Mozambique have renewed their partnership to fight crime across the border between Malawi and Mozambique.
The two parties made the agreement on Monday in Mozambique.
In her remarks, Dedza Police Station officer-in-charge Mwizamose Nyoni said it was high time the two sides strengthened their partnership to end cross-border crime.
“Some of the perpetrators hide along the border. So, we need to tighten the borders,” she said.
Nyoni also said they will enforce the adherence of Covid-19 preventive measures.
On her part, Calomue Police Station principal inspector Awessa Candiado said time had come to end cross-border crime.
She commended Dedza Police Station for arresting two wanted Mozambicans.
The suspects were arrested in Dedza on August 29 2021 after allegedly being found with human tissues.
Candiado warned that her charges will not entertain Malawian returnees who use uncharted routes to avoid screening for Covid-19 at Dedza Border Post.
