President Nyusi announced on Sunday in Tete that he had already sent invitations to some countries to send experts on demilitarisation as part of the process of reintegrating residual Renamo combatants into the National Defence Armed Forces.
Filipe Nyusi, who is also president of Frelimo, made this information available to the National Meeting of Party Social Organisations, saying it was part of his plan to see the country effectively at peace by the time of the municipal elections.
“Every step we take I communicate to the country and also to the world, because the world is attentive to our peace process. The feeling is that we would like to have the elections without arms, and this is the work we are doing together with our Renamo brothers. We came to a consensus and we are now in the phase of integrating officers who are in the armed forces, to bring about a relative balance. But this whole process also obeys what the Mozambican military want, the competence, the capacity, so the integration that has been done obeys this feeling, because the government, as well as Renamo, wants Mozambique to have a competent army capable of responding to all concerns at all times,” he said.
While in Tete, the Frelimo president will today preside over a Mozambican Youth Organisation Central Committee session.Source: Rádio Moçambique
