Could Afonso Dhlakama's Brother Take Over Renamo Leadership?

Mozambique's main opposition party, Renamo, has denied claims that Elias Dhlakama, the younger brother of the late Renamo leader Afonso Dhlakama, wants to take over the leadership of the party. Before his death, Afonso Dhlakama advised his brother to leave the army but Elias refused, and in 2015 he was promoted to the rank of brigadier. Now there's speculation swirling that he could join politics - although he has to quit the army first.
