A message from the British High Commission in Malawi
""We have recently been notified by the Chief Immigration Officer that a country-wide operation is going on involving the police and immigration authorities. It is aimed at catching illegal entrants to Malawi. We have been notified of a couple of British nationals picked up for not being able to show their passport and immigration status. In light of this we would advise all British nationals to carry around a copy of their passport (biodata) page and copy of their visa or immigration permit at all times. You may be asked to provide this at police roadblocks. The Chief Immigration Officer has confirmed the only a COPY of the documents are needed to prove your status. You should always keep your passport safe and report to the British High Commission immediately if it is lost or stolen.""

I've never carried anything other than driving licence, but in consideration of the above this would seem to no longer be adequate.
