SEVERAL trucks are marooned at Mwami border following post-election protests in Malawi that have spread to Mchinji district that borders with Chipata.
Some people who conduct business at the border stated that trucks were being cleared on the Zambian side but were not being allowed entry into Malawi.
On Thursday, protesters forced authorities in Malawia to close operations at the border.
The angry protesters burnt tyres on the Malawian side.
And some truck drivers who are stuck at the border post have called on the Malawian government to take urgent measures in arresting the tension that had engulfed the country to allow their business to normalise.
And Zambia Revenue Authority corporate Affairs manager Topsy Sikalinda said operation on the Zambian side have not been affected by the unrest in Malawi.
He, however, expressed optimism that operations on the Malawian side would normalise as soon as possible.
Meanwhile, Chipata District Commissioner Kalunga Zulu has urged Malawians coming to Zambia to follow laid down procedure when entering the country, warning that those who fail to abide by the law risk being declared illegal immigrants.
