This week AllAfrica's Silencing The Guns series where we focus on peacebuilding on the continent, we're talking about the situation in Mozambique, where terror engulfs the northern province of Cabo Delgado. We'll hear from David Matsinhe, Southern African researcher at Amnesty International and author, historian and peace practitioner Yussuf Adam, who shares his experiences after a field visit in the north.
First a dive into what led Cabo Delgado to become the centre of battles between government troops and fighters led by men the U.S. has now designated as Islamist terrorists, then one of the most respected long-term researchers of Cabo Delgado in Mozambique speaks out after seeing the horrific living conditions of Mozambicans displaced by the ongoing fighting.

AllAfrica's reporting on peacebuilding in Africa is supported by the Carnegie Corporation of New York, "investing in knowledge that inspires informed action in democracy, education and international peace".
