Researcher and university lecturer Egna Sidumo said on Thursday peace negotiations in Mozambique between the government and the opposition would guarantee conditions for free elections and will avoid new conflicts.
The lack of accountability in episodes of conflict and the lack of a reconciliation process are, however, gaps the country needs to fill, she added.
Sidumo also said the main cause of conflicts in Mozambique was the election results.
Mozambique’s most recent elections in October 2018 saw observers and opposition parties RENAMO and MDM claim the vote had been marred by irregularities, with the ruling Frelimo party denying the accusations.
Renamo and Frelimo fought a 16-year civil war that killed around 1 million people before they signed a peace agreement in 1992 that put an end to the fighting.Source: Lusa
