Mozambique: Governor of Zambezia calls for defence of National Unity

The governor of the central Mozambican province of Zambezia, Abdul Razak, on Monday urged all Mozambicans to defend national unity, as a basic requirement for the preservation of peace.

'Victory Day' should therefore be a time for reflection, about the construction of a common destiny for Mozambicans without any exclusion. The mayor of Quelimane, Manuel de Araujo, who is a leading figure in the opposition Mozambique Democratic Movement (MDM), had accused the government of following a policy of exclusion.But in reality the government, Razak stressed, is committed to inclusion. When it builds a school, a hospital, a road or a power line, it is to serve all Mozambicans, he insisted.“We urge everyone to be architects of peace in their families and in society”, said the governor. “We urge the leader of Renamo (Afonso Dhlakama) to agree to enter into dialogue with President Filipe Nyusi in order to preserve the peace which guarantees the development and well-being of all”. The resort to war only brings destruction, he warned. “Mozambicans want a united an indivisible Mozambique”, Razak added. “We must continue to cultivate national unity and defend the integrity of our sovereignty”.
