Mozambican President Filipe Nyusi says the government and Renamo, the main opposition party, will unite to counter any attempt to undermine the definitive cessation of military hostilities agreement signed on Thursday.
Persons unknown attacked a passenger bus and lorry on Wednesday afternoon on then road between Nhamapadza-Gorongosa in central Mozambique just few hours before the signing of the definitive cessation of military hostilities agreement between Filipe Nyusi and the leader of the Mozambican National Resistance (Renamo), Ossufo Momade, in the Gorongosa Mountains.
The attack, which took place just 200 kilometres from where the agreement was signed, injured a driver and his mate, while the bus came away with bullet holes but no casualties reported.
At his rally in Beira after the signing, the Mozambican head of state said that the government and Renamo would act jointly to counter any threat to peace. “The government and Renamo will come together to round up those who fire or continue armed resistance,” Filipe Nyusi said.
Nyusi called the perpetrators of Wednesday’s attack “enemies of peace” who should not be associated with Renamo.
In recent weeks, a breakaway group of guerrillas within the armed wing of the main opposition party has warned the government that it would continue military hostilities in the country if the government signed the agreement with Ossufo Momade, demanding that he resign as president of Renamo.
The group warned that it would not accept the Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration process that began on Monday as long as Momade remains Renamo president.Source: Lusa
