Mozambique’s President Filipe Nyusi announced today in the Assembly of the Republic that tomorrow, Thursday, in the Gorongosa mountains, he will sign the peace agreement for the final cessation of military hostilities with Renamo leader Ossufo Momade.
Filipe Nyusi said that Thursday’s agreement provides for a formal end to clashes between the Mozambican Defence and Security Forces and the armed wing of the opposition Mozambican National Resistance (Renamo).
The understanding stems from the talks held by Filipe Nyusi and the late leader of the main opposition party Afonso Dhlakama and later with the current Renamo president Ossufo Momade.
As part of the dialogue between Nyusi and the Renamo leadership, the disarmament, demobilisation and reintegration of the armed wing of this party also began in the central Sierra de Gorongosa.
Thursday’s agreement will be the third Peace Agreement signed between the government of the Mozambican Liberation Front (Frelimo) and Renamo, following the signing of the 1992 Rome General Peace Agreement and the Cessation of Military Hostilities agreement in 2014, after a fresh wave of clashes between the two parties.Source: Lusa
