My fiance just got arrested in Malawi for an expired visa, what can I do?

She is in the country for an extended volunteering position (personally organized through in-country contacts), and was told when she went though passport control that she had been given a 90-day visa. It has been 35 since she landed - apparently she was only stamped for 30 days.
--As far as I know, she hasn't broken any laws, other than the visa violation.
--I've contacted the American Embassy in Malawi, they are working on the case, are getting the consular involved, and will "get back to me in a couple of hours."
--I've called her mom.
I'm sorry if this isn't much to go on, I'm just freaking out and don't know what else to do!
Confounding problem - her cell phone is dying!
