About seven Malawi Airlines employees on a flight that has flown President Lazarus Chakwera to Botswana have been refused to disembark at the airport.
Quoting an anonymous source, the Nation Online said the seven include Cabin Crew, an engineer and two pilots.
They have been denied to disembark from the plane because they failed to produce Covid-19 certificates as required in that country.
“They can’t even go to the airport terminal and they can’t refresh. All this is due to their company’s (Malawian Airlines) negligence as they took it for granted since its a return trip within a day.
“It is embarrassing as it means that they have to wait right there in the plane up until the President finishes all his meetings and that will be obviously too late,” the source told the Nation Online.
Chakwera is attending the Southern Africa Development Community (SADC) Extraordinary Troika Summit of the Organ, on Politics, Defence and Security Cooperation, in Gaborone Botswana.
