Mozambique president accepts foreign mediators to end conflict

20 June 2016, 13:06

Maputo - Mozambique President Filippe Nyusi has finally given in to the demands by Renamo leader Afonso Dhlakama, to accept the presence of foreign mediators to bring an end to his country's conflict, Nyasa Times reports.

Nyusi confirmed in a television broadcast that he had agreed to foreign mediators and would like to see the mediation talks begin as soon as possible.

The news came as a relief to the people of Malawi, who had been caught in the cross fire of the ongoing conflict.

Nyusi added that the continued violence had changed his stance on the matter, with at least four Malawians being killed in Mozambique and as many fuel tankers being burned.

The Malawian government had since advised transporters to use alternative routes and avoid areas of conflict.

News24 previously reported that the Renamo rebel group have intensified its  attacks to include all foreign vehicles using the country's roads.

The group which at first was mainly targeting police units and state facilities was now attacking foreigners and foreign vehicles that used Mozambican routes.

The current fighting bordered on misunderstanding between Dhlakama and Nyusi on power-sharing deal.

Renamo wanted to govern in the provinces where it won elections but the government had on several occasions shot down the proposal, prompting Renamo to resort to military violence.
