Opposition Renamo leader Ossufo Momade has denied that his party had anything to do with the attacks on the roads of Manica and the neighbouring province of Sofala, blaming the Renamo Military Junta - but also the Mozambican state for failing "to act against the crocodile while it is still small". Leader of the Renamo faction, Mariano Nhongo is reported to have boasted that he had given the command for the attacks.
