Malawi High Commissioner to Mozambique Frank Viyazi has assured the citizenry that the government of Mozambique has started providing armed security to Malawian trucks driving through the Tete and Biera Conflict zone.
There has been civil war in some areas of Mozambique between the governing Frelimo and opposing Renamo led by Alfonso Dhlakama.
The provision of security to Malawian trucks is one way of securing the innocent travelers life and their goods.
Viyazi said that there is no war in Mozambique but only political conflicts between two parties.
“Government forces are disarming Renamo soldiers and this process has been ongoing. But there are some sections that are resisting the disbarment, and that it is the cause of conflict,” said Viyazi.
