Minister of Homeland Security, Kenneth Zikhale Ng’oma has called for concerted efforts from various stakeholders in the fight against human trafficking and terrorism in the country.

The Minister made the call in Lilongwe during the launch of Malawi’s National Counter Terrorism – Violent Extremism Strategy and National Plan of Action Against Trafficking in Persons (2023-2028).

“In order to achieve these strategies, there is need for various stakeholders to join the government in its continued efforts to ensuring sustainable peace and security in the country,” Zikhale emphasized.

Additionally, the Minister also highlighted the critical role of the Media in sensitizing the general public on the negative effects of these crimes and their adverse impact on national development.

In her remarks, United Nations Resident Coordinator Rebecca Adda-Dontoh reiterated the commitment by UN in supporting the Malawi government in combating trafficking in persons and it’s links to organized crimes.

The two documents will provide an integral approach for all stakeholders in order to achieve the vision of creating a Malawi free from terrorism and trafficking in persons.
