Some Malawians of Asian origin this week accused the National Registration Bureau (NRB) officers stationed registration centres in some parts of the country, for being biased and discriminatory especially when carrying their duties in the ongoing national identity cards registration exercise.

One member of the group Rafik Gaffar, confirmed the development; he said the NRB officers working in the centers are barring Malawians of Asian origin, to register.

“They said we are not allowed to directly registered at the centers, but to go through the office of the District Commissioners, while our fellow Malawians are not doing that,” he said.
