The Malawian government says its mission in South Africa is busy preparing to help repatriate citizens affected by xenophobic violence.

On its official Twitter feed, the government says it's established two centres in Lilongwe and Blantyre to receive and process people fleeing xenophobic unrest in KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng.
According to a statement issues by the Malawian government, the Malawi High Commission and consulate in South Africa have been called to action and are working around the clock with the South African government to register the displaced Malawians as well as monitor and assess the situation as tension remains high.

The statement also says people will first be housed in two reception centres that have been established in Blantyre and Lilongwe upon their arrival.
Meanwhile, international relations department Nelson Kgwete says Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane will be meeting with African mission diplomats.

“The minister will outline the plans government has implemented this far and the plans the government plans to put in place to ensure that we contain the violence and to ensure peaceful coexistence between South Africans and other nationalities residing in South Africa.”
