Mozambique: Filipe Nyusi urges Renamo to be 'more flexible' in disarmament agreement
A Bola (File photo) / Dom Jaime Gonçalves played a major role in the Mozambican peace process as one of the main mediators of the Rome Peace Accords, signed between Renamo and the Mozambican government in October 1992.
Dom Jaime Pedro Gonçalves, Archbishop emeritus of Beira, is suffering from “serious health problems” which have prevented his attendance at important ceremonies recently.
Concerned for the archbishop’s health, Sofala governor Maria Helena Taipo recently visited the cleric at his home in the city’s Macuti neighbourhood.
Don Jaime, 78, has been receiving medical care at home, since his health does not allow him to move.
“Dom Jaime’s state of health has worsened in recent days and he is currently receiving medical care at home. He has difficulty getting out of bed and communicating with visitors,” said a source close to the Archbishop emeritus of Beira.
Dom Jaime, one of the most respected religious and civic figures in Mozambique, has been adviser to Daviz Simango, president of the Democratic Movement of Mozambique and mayor of Beira.Source: A Bola
