President of Mozambique, Filipe Nyusi, will attend the investiture of Emmerson Mnangagwa as head of state of Zimbabwe today, the presidency has announced.
Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, Oldemiro Balói, will accompany the president on his trip to the neighbouring country.
Balói has so far been the only Mozambican official to comment on the situation in Zimbabwe. Asked on Wednesday about the impact of President Mugabe’s resignation on relations with Mozambique, he said that its influence “will be in the best sense”.
“Zimbabweans have written their own history. They have encountered a problem, resolved it between them, seem satisfied with the solution and that is what matters,” the head of Mozambican diplomacy announced.
Robert Mugabe, age 93, resigned on Tuesday after 37 years in power following a military uprising last week after he ousted former Vice President and long-time ally Emmerson Mnangagwa.
