Renamo says it will prepare a proposal to have Afonso Dhlakama, the historic leader of the guerrilla and later of Mozambique’s largest opposition party, declared a national hero. Dhlakama, who died in May last year at age 65, led Renamo for 38 years.
The desire to see Dhlakama’s name on the list of national heroes was revealed yesterday by Renamo’s president during his opening address to the party’s National Council meeting in Nampula.
Speaking from the Gorongosa mountain range, Ossufo Momade launched a fierce criticism of the nationwide voter registration process since 15 April, citing equipment failures, lack of electrical current and late opening of the registration posts.
The election of the secretary general of the party was one of the main items on the Renamo National Council meeting agenda, whose circa 200 participants duly selected André Magibire for the post.
