President Nyusi addresses Zambian parliament, restates country’s determination to ensure peace, build stable economy


Mozambican President, Felip Nyusi, has vowed to crush insurgents terrorising the northern part of the country.

Nyusi expressed satisfaction with the progress made in the fight against terrorists in the Cabo Delgado region.

Addressing the Zambian Parliament on Friday during his state visit, Nyusi highlighted that the Mozambican defense forces, with support from Rwanda and the Southern African Development Community (SADC), have been successfully destroying terrorist bases and incapacitating their operatives.

“Our Defence and Security Forces, with the support of local Forces, and Friendly Forces of SADC (SAMIM) and of Rwanda have been destroying the terrorists’ bases, putting their ringleaders and operatives out of action,” Nyusi stated.

He affirmed his government’s unwavering commitment to combating terrorism, emphasising that defending the nation’s territory is a primary responsibility of all Mozambicans.

Nyusi mentioned that this resolve would persist even with the scheduled withdrawal of the SADC Mission in Mozambique (SAMIM) by July 15, 2024.

Despite the terrorist activities in the north, Nyusi assured that Mozambique remained relatively stable and continues to take visible steps towards sustainable and inclusive development.

“However, the government and the people of Mozambique remain firm in continuing with the efforts to seek definitive peace,” he stated.

Nyusi highlighted ongoing structural reforms aimed at making Mozambique viable and attractive for both domestic and foreign investment, which he deemed essential for job creation, particularly for the youth.

Regarding the internal peace process, Nyusi noted that the government and RENAMO reached an Agreement for Definitive Peace in 2019, grounded in dialogue, trust, and mutual respect. As part of this agreement, the disarmament and demobilization of approximately 5,200 RENAMO guerrillas were completed last year.

The reintegration pensions for the last 900 beneficiaries are in the final phase of establishment, marking a significant step towards lasting peace and stability in Mozambique.
