The Ministry of Lands and Housing has completed demarcating the border between Malawi and Zambia.
Surveyor General in the Department of Lands Felix Mangani said this in an email response to a questionnaire, asking an update on progress of the project.
But Mangani said the department is currently setting up beacons on the Malawi-Mozambique border.
â€œThe exercise of demarcating the Malawi-Zambia international boundary in terms of erecting beacon pillars was done.
â€œBut the exercise of reaffirming the international boundary with Mozambique is under way. The joint team of surveyors from both countries is currently in Nsanje,â€ he said.
In the 2011/2012 budget, K30 million was set aside for demarcating a 152 km stretch on the Malawi-Zambia border.
In 2010/2011 financial year, K150 million was also allocated for demarcating another stretch of 100 km on the same border.
As for the Malawi-Mozambique border, K36 million was set aside in the 2011/2012 budget for reaffirming a 128 km stretch between the two countries while the 2010/2011 budget allocated k36.56 million for reaffirming 200 km of the same border.
Experts have described lack of clear boundaries between Malawi and its neighbouring countries as a recipe for conflicts.
Malawi is currently locked in border wrangle with Tanzania which is claiming that the boundary between the two countries is at the middle of Lake Malawi. Malawi disputes this.
Malawi wants the UN Secretary Generalâ€™s office to mediate in the lake border dispute and that Dodoma should commit itself to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) determination.
