Mnangagwa, Nyusi Meet As Mozambique Insurgency Intensifies

President Emmerson Mnangagwa, who chairs the SADC organ on politics, defence and security cooperation's meeting with Mozambican President Filipe Nyusi comes after Mozambique's security forces killed at least 129 insurgents in the northern Cabo Delgado. Since 2017, infrequent but violent raids on government buildings and villages by militias with suspected links to the Islamic State have intensified in the gas-rich northernmost province of one of Africa's poorest nations.

President Emmerson Mnangagwa and his Mozambican counterpart President Filipe Nyusi exchange greetings in Chimoio, Mozambique.
