Mozambique’s former rebel movement Renamo has raised yet another pre-condition to be met before it will lay down its arms – the release of what it calls “political prisoners”.After the latest round of dialogue between the government and Renamo, on Wednesday, the head of the Renamo delegation, Saimone Macuiana, claimed that the release of these prisoners was essential for a return to peace.According to a report in the independent daily “O Pais”, chief among those whom Renamo wishes to see freed is the head of its information department, Jeronimo Malagueta, who was charged with incitement to violence last June.Malagueta held a press conference to announce that Renamo would prevent the movement of vehicles along the main north-south highway between the Save river and Muxungue, in Sofala province, as well as the movement of trains along the Sena rail line between the Moatize coal basin and Beira. Malagueta’s statement was interpreted in some quarters as “a declaration of war”. At the press conference he was asked if that was the correct interpretation to put on his words, but he declined to answer.The police did not pick up Malagueta immediately after his incendiary statements, but only two days later, after Renamo gunmen really did begin ambushing vehicles, and murdering their drivers and passengers, on the Save-Muxungue stretch of the main road. Malagueta was charged with incitement but, thanks to the habitual lethargy of the Mozambican legal system, the case has not yet come to trial. Macuiana also demanded the release of the Renamo gunmen detained in a clash with the riot police in the northern city of Nampula in March 2012.This comes on top of another Renamo pre-condition – namely that there should be “international mediation” in future talks with the government. For the government, this is unacceptable. The head of the government delegation, Agriculture Minister Jose Pacheco, told reporters on Wednesday that the dialogue with Renamo was an internal matter between Mozambicans for which no foreign mediation was required. The government had no wish to “internationalise” the discussions.These pre-conditions make Renamo promises to halt attacks once the appropriate mechanisms are put in place sound hollow. According to Macuiana, those mechanisms would include guarantees of inspecting and controlling a ceasefire.
The government, however, speaks not of a ceasefire, but of the unconditional disarming of Renamo. For Renamo has already signed one ceasefire – under the general peace agreement of 1992. Renamo has violated that agreement by activating units of armed men who ought to have been demobilised under the peace accord. The ruling Frelimo Party is clearly incensed at what it regards as Renamo’s bad faith. In February, Frelimo agreed to amend the electoral legislation to accommodate all of Renamo’s key demand, including staffing the electoral bodies with literally hundreds of political appointees. Since the excuse for the Renamo attacks was precisely the electoral legislation, Frelimo expected Renamo to halt the attacks, and that has not happened. Speaking in the country’s parliament, the Assembly of the Republic, on Thursday, the spokesperson for the Frelimo parliamentary group, Edmundo Galiza-Matos Junior, said he had assumed that Frelimo’s concessions over the electoral laws would bring the attacks to an end. But he was now convinced that the unanimity in passing the election laws, the applause, the embraces between the heads of the Renamo, Frelimo and MDM parliamentary groups was “all just a show – and, contrary to our expectations, we face more armed attacks”.

Most of the mining companies operating in the western Mozambican province of Tete are not honouring their legal obligation to channel part of their revenues to the development of the local communities.Speaking at a press conference on Thursday, during a meeting of the Coordinating Council of the Ministry of Planning and Development, the Tete provincial director of planning and finance, Maria de Lurdes Fonseca, said the mining companies should have paid 22.2 million meticais (about 719,000 US dollars) in 2013,But in reality only 7.2 million meticais was paid to the communities, and that came from just one company, Vale of Brazil.According to Prime Minister Alberto Vaquina, speaking in the Mozambican parliament, the Assembly of the Republic, the state budget, for both 2013 and 2014, stipulates that 2.75 per cent of the revenues generated by mining companies should be used for community development in the areas where the mines are located. This is covered by laws on mining taxation of 2007 and 2013.But Fonseca said that most of the companies have so far paid nothing at all. The other coal mining companies that ought to have paid are the Anglo-Australian company Rio Tinto, Jindal of
and Minas de Moatize (owned by the British company Beacon
Hill). “We have to work harder to convince the companies to
hand over the revenue”, she said. Several meetings with company representatives
have been held, but the three companies are still not respecting their legal
obligations to the communities. “Because there’s been no consensus, we’ve
asked for support from the central authorities to overcome the problem”, added
Fonseca.However, the money paid by Vale had made it possible to finance 14
community projects in agricultural marketing, general trade, and poultry
farming. 320 permanent and seasonal jobs were created, and an agricultural
service centre was set up in Tete, equipped with seven tractors to assist

Mozambique’s Central Office for the Fight against Corruption (GCCC) has charged the administrator and the permanent secretary of one of the districts of the northern province of Nampula of embezzling 1.1 million meticais (about 36,000 US dollars).Addressing a Maputo press briefing, the GCCC spokesperson, Bernardo Duce, did not reveal the names of the suspects, or the district concerned. He said the two claimed that the money had covered expenditure concerning travel on duty inside and outside the district.“During the investigation, the administrator and the permanent secretary could not present any documents justifying their claims”, said Duce. “For this reason, they have been charged and presented to a magistrate”. He said that in February, the GCCC processed 47 cases, four of which have been sent to courts for trial. No corruption trials were held in February (which is part of the judicial holidays when courts do not hear any new cases). There were also no reports of the arrests of any allegedly corrupt officials. One of the cases that has been charged concerns a former director of district education, youth and technology services, in the central
who, on learning that a teacher was ill, set up a mechanism to steal his wages.
He managed to steal 105,000 meticais that belonged to the teacher before he was
found out and sacked.Another case concerns an official in the Inhambane
provincial government who demanded bribes of 8,200 meticais from two people who
were seeking teaching jobs. Meanwhile, the national director of the Legal
Aid Institute (IPAJ), Justino Tovela, has announced that ten members of the
Institute have been caught extorting money from clients. IPAJ is supposed
to provide legal services to people who cannot afford to pay for a lawyer, but
several of its members were found to be making illicit charges for work that
should be free of charge.Tovela said the ten have been suspended from duty and
will be taken to court. province of Zambezia

Dispelling the idea that there was an
The Minister said that the state apparatus has become “more robust in terms of the number of staff it employs and the greater demand for public services by citizens – hence the need for new public buildings in line with the new dynamic and new technologies”.This included not only the presidential complex, but new buildings for several ministries, the National Statistics Institute (INE), the Mozambique Tax Authority (AT), and the Administrative Tribunal.Chang noted that the Assembly itself has asked the government to finance a new parliamentary complex, including accommodation for deputies, which would be built on the other side of Maputo Bay, in the municipal district of Katembe, at a cost of 443.4 million dollars.The government has approached the Chinese authorities with this request for funding, and was awaiting a reply.
