SADC Backs Mozambique in Fight Against Insurgents

In a communiqué after an Extra-Ordinary Summit held in Zimbabwe, the security body of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) has "committed" the regional organisation to help Mozambique fight the insurgency which is gaining momentum in its northernmost province of Cabo Delgado. Although the statement did not say whether SADC would send troops to fight the militants, the Chairperson of the SADC Troika, President Emmerson Mnangagwa said the situation in Mozambique called for "an enhanced joint action given the transnational nature of the terrorist groups".
