Three more people lost their lives and two were injured on Wednesday in another attack in Nangade district in Cabo Delgado, ‘Carta de Moçambique’ reports.
‘Carta’ sources say the attackers struck the village of Litingina at around 9:00 p.m., when families were already taking to their beds. Informants say the insurgents fired into the air as they entered the village, giving much of the population time to flee the scene.
The same sources were however unable to clarify the circumstances under which three casualties met their deaths or the other two were wounded, and could only describe the panic in the village in general terms. Several homes, shops and two trucks loaded with cashews were set alight.
In the meantime… refugee business prospers
Since the attacks on Nambo, Goludo and Darumba villages in the Mucojo administrative post, Macomia district, many families have taken refuge on Ibo and Matemo islands. The same goes for residents from the villages of Olumboa and Crimize, also in Mucojo.
Those displaced stay at relatives’ houses on the islands, because an accommodation centre has not yet been built. Others flee to Macomia and Mocímboa da Praia, or Pemba city.
With people moving en masse from Mucojo and Quiterajo villages to Macomia headquarters village, and from there to other districts of Cabo Delgado, passenger transport operators have hiked tariffs and began charging, for example, 250 meticais for a ticket from Mucojo to Macomia, against the previous 200 meticais. Children pay half-price, and some other items, such as luggage, are also charged for.
