South Africa Repatriates Citizens Trapped in Northern Mozambique

Support has been deployed to the South African High Commission for the repatriation of citizens trapped in Cabo Delgado, in northern Mozambique, amid concerns of the security situation in that region. The repatriation efforts are specifically for South Africans who wish to return home. The support is provided through the deployment of the South African National Defence Force.

Senior officials with the UN refugee agency have warned of the urgent need to address the growing humanitarian crisis in the Cabo Delgado province in northern Mozambique, where an ongoing insurgency has uprooted hundreds of thousands of people.


The Mozambican army has been battling insurgents since 2017.
