Postpone Mozambique Polls, Demands Renamo Faction

The leader of a faction inside Mozambique's main opposition party Renamo, Mariano Nhongo, has demanded that the general elections, scheduled for October 15, be postponed so that he can compete. This comes after, the faction held a three day meeting at which it "elected" Nhongo as the leader of Renamo, announcing the overthrow of Ossufo Momade, the party's leader who was elected at a party congress in January 2019.
