A lasting peace in Mozambique involves the “disarming of the hearts and minds “, a bishop emeritus of the Anglican Church and former mediator of peace negotiations between the government and Renamo says.
“Disarming the minds, hands and hearts is essential for an effective peace,” Dom Dinis Sengulane says in an interview published by daily O Pais today.
Dom Dinis Sengulane urged Mozambicans not to be afraid to denounce actions that undermine peace-seeking efforts.
“It is forbidden to be afraid and indifferent to situations that undermine peace,” he says.
The bishop emeritus of the Anglican Church of Mozambique said that the country should commit to national reconciliation and the prevention of potential conflict, and pointed to excessive consumption of drugs and alcohol among the young as two evils also contributing to social instability in the country.
“There can be no peace where there are people who are drunk and drugged. Young people must no to these evils,” he added.
As a contribution to peacekeeping, the Dom Dinis Sengulane Foundation on Sunday launched a “prayers of the month of peace” initiative, calling on all Mozambicans to put peace at the centre of their prayers.
On 6 June, Mozambican President Filipe Nyusi formally launched the disarmament process of the armed wing of the Mozambican National Resistance (Renamo), the main opposition party, in the framework of talks with the government aiming at a definitive peace.Source: Lusa
